This one?

commit dc7588c1eb3008bda53dde1d6b890cd299758155

    rbd: add an asynchronous flush
    The existing bdrv_co_flush_to_disk implementation uses rbd_flush(),
    which is sychronous and causes the main qemu thread to block until it
    is complete. This results in unresponsiveness and extra latency for
    the guest.
    Fix this by using an asynchronous version of flush.  This was added to
    librbd with a special #define to indicate its presence, since it will
    be backported to stable versions. Thus, there is no need to check the
    version of librbd.
    Implement this as bdrv_aio_flush, since it matches other aio functions
    in the rbd block driver, and leave out bdrv_co_flush_to_disk when the
    asynchronous version is available.

Do you see it even with "-drive discard=off"?
