You only disabled it in the backend, so blkfront is announcing
persistent grant support while blkback is not. This means that blkback
will use persistent grants (because it sees the frontend supports them),
but blkfront will not.

You also need to disable the feature announcement from the frontend,
just grep for feature-persistent in xen-blkfront.c.
