Thanks, Henrik pal!

I re-read the related codes of the flags and find the following opinion.

I think the following three flags have the same function, even though
their names are different,
disk_io_pending, store_copying, copy_event_pending .

They all serve for the same purpose that only one thing can be done
at a time.

Am I correct?

Best regards,
George Ma
