    aoe: add module parameter for users who need more outstanding I/O
    An AoE target provides an estimate of the number of outstanding commands 
    the AoE initiator can send before getting a response.  The aoe_maxout
    parameter provides a way to set an even lower limit.  It will not allow a 
    to use more outstanding commands than the target permits.  If a user 
    a problem with a large setting, this parameter provides a way for us to work
    with them to debug the problem.  We expect to improve the dynamic window
    sizing algorithm and drop this parameter.  For the time being, it is a
    debugging aid.
