This RFC converts indirect function calls into direct function calls.
It converts one user as an example (readahead).  Converting more users of
iomap_apply() would yield a more advantageous diffstat.  It's actually
slightly more code in each filesystem, but indirect function calls
are pretty expensive.  It also flattens the call graph (see the patch
2 changelog).  This all needs more refinement, but I'm about to start
work on overhauling the block size < page size support, and I thought
I'd send this out now.

It does survive a basic xfstests run.
