Hehe.  I think the first condition has an implied verb, leading to
>1 possible parse.  :)  The parse I *think* was intended would be the
same as

  - all currently pending write requests HAVE BEEN ENTERED on the completion

Yes, that queue contains only pending requests, but there can be other
pending requests that aren't there yet.

The other conditions had implied verbs too.  :)
