qa: ceph-fuse flushes very slowly in some workunits
Our ffsb and fsync workunits both generate lots of small IOs at random offsets, each of which becomes its own Op to the OSDs. That means they can take upwards of ten minutes to flush after the test "finishes". There might be other users with patterns like this, and it would be great if they didn't see such gratuitously IO-intensive bad performance.

I spot-checked one wow that the ObjectCacher is coalescing IOs to a single object. It looks like things have gotten faster but still aren't great because there are so many individual objects in a large file...which we probably can't do anything about? Closing since at least nobody's complained about it again.
