zio_free() can be processed immediately in the common case
zfs - Zettabyte File System
From Matt Ahrens's original bug report at Delphix:
Currently zio_free() always puts the zio on a list for subsequent processing by zio_free_sync(). This is only necessary for frees that might need to issue reads (gang and dedup blocks). By processing the majority of the frees as we encounter them, we reduce the amount of time that the spa_sync() thread spends burning CPU and not doing any i/o, thus increasing the overall write throughput of the system.
