It's an interesting alternative indeed.  This however means our ext2fs
is not multithreaded any longer, which is a bit sad considered that
we'll want to go parallel in the end.

AIUI, Justus' second patch however now allows to limit the number of
threads, since the issue I had raised with it is solved by levelling the
requests into two separate buckets.  Would it make sense to just limit
the number of threads to one, so as to get the same kind of performance
benefit without losing the potential for parallelism?
