...this is a whole other discussion, but...
Solaris has a B_ORDERED flag which is a hint specifically for this type
Basically, metadata writes (and any other writes that need to be ordered)
would set B_ORDERED, and this would affect disksort() (for disks which
don't supported tagged commands) and the type of tag used (for disks that do).
A B_URGENT (Head-Of-Queue tag) flag might also be useful.
