[dm-devel] dm bufio: Reduce dm_bufio_lock contention

We reproduced this issue again and found out the root cause.
dm_bufio_prefetch() with dm_bufio_lock enters the direct reclaim and
takes a long time to do the soft_limit_reclaim, because of the huge
number of memory excess of the memcg.
Then, all the task who do shrink_slab() wait for dm_bufio_lock.
Any suggestions for this?Thanks.
