Sequential DRL

Some volumes, such as those that are used for database replay logs, are written sequentially and do not benefit from delayed cleaning of the DRL bits. For these volumes, sequential DRL can be used to limit the number of dirty regions. This allows for faster recovery should a crash occur. However, if applied to volumes that are written to randomly, sequential DRL can be a performance bottleneck as it limits the number of parallel writes that can be carried out.
