It is useless to process small sync direct reads asynchronously,
because that optimization works only if we send more than one
request to userspace fused concurrently.
On the other hand, the patch workarounds a problem reported by AK:
> If a cluster hangs (for any reason), all max_background fuse
> requests are usually consumed and async io is impossible.
> Unfortunately it also makes impossible to read .vstorage.info
> that is necessary to investigate why the cluster hanged.
