    I couldn't find any docs explaining the contents of /sys/block/<dev>/stat,
    so I wrote up the following.  I'm not completely sure it's accurate - Jens,
    could you give a yea or nay on this?
    
    In particular, the counts of read/write IOs and read/write sectors are
    incremented in different places - it looks like they both increment as the
    request is being finished, but I'm not completely sure of that.
