    you mean that you run 128 processes on each user-device pairs? Namely,
    I guess that

    user1: 128 processes on sdb5,
    user2: 128 processes on sdb5,
    another: 128 processes on sdb5,
    user2: 128 processes on sdb6.

    The second preliminary studies might be:

    - What if you use a different I/O size on each device (or device-user pair)?
    - What if you use a different number of processes on each device (or
    device-user pair)?

    And my impression is that it's natural dm-band is in device-mapper,
    separated from I/O scheduler. Because bandwidth control and I/O
    scheduling are two different things, it may be simpler that they are
    implemented in different layers.
