So here's a pretty basic test. It does random reads from a bunch of
devices, I tested both 4kb and 64kb block sizes. Queue depth used is 32
for both cases, but note that this test uses a thread per device (so the
queue depth is 32 per device). Results are averaged over 3 runs.
slat/clat are the submission and completion latencies, they are in
microseconds here.

4kb random reads

kernel sys IOPS slat clat
----------------------------------------------------
2.6.32-rc3+patch 25.8% 192500 7.9 2606
2.6.32-rc3 27.4% 191300 8.4 2612


64kb random reads

kernel sys IOPS slat clat
----------------------------------------------------
2.6.32-rc3+patch 2.5% 24590 9.7 9681
2.6.32-rc3 2.5% 24580 9.4 9691
So pretty close, nothing earth shattering here. What the results above
do not show is that the 4kb test runs very stable with your patch.
Mainline fluctuates somewhat in the bandwidth, most likely due to the
varying depth.
