Description of problem:
After code review of /usr/share/v7/tests/storage/storage.py, I found that
dt has a global option 'enable=aio' and I think that is improper for raw I/O test.
raw I/O test should be non-buffered, need to directly write to the block layer.And aio option use memory cache, and may confuse test result.I think remove this option and just with 'flags=direct' is more proper

In v7 1.3, storage test enabled aio option in both buffered I/O testing and raw I/O testing, which was incorrect since raw I/O should be unbuffered. This issue has been fixed in v7 1.4, now v7 storage test uses "flags=direct" option in raw I/O testing instead of using aio.
