Regretfully, the tiotest v0.4.1 still have bugs that I haven't
resolved, even applied my previous patch,

such as this reported on a single SATA disk, simple dd benchmark
report its bandwidth is 70MB/s, do you believe it has 1489.8 MB/s
random read performance?

But it's weird when I'm using systemtap on it,

# stap -ve 'probe kernel.function("vfs_read@fs/read_write.c") { ... }'
it reports all pread successfully return fast,

# ./tiotest -R -d /dev/sdb5 -f 1 -r 1024000 -t 1
