Okay I didn't realize that it did. As I understand diskd is used to
offload I/O processing to seperate processes. I thought that that
included unlink(). I might have been wrong.

Anyway I'll still include this patch with Debian because it is
compiled with ufs (unlinkd needed) and aufs (unlinkd not needed).
Besides, the patch is trivially changed so that unlinkd is run if
ufs OR diskd is used.

Why, you already have threads anyway.
