Hi Vivek,

It seems this version doesn't work very well for "direct(O_DIRECT) sequence read" mode.
For example, you can create group A and group B, then assign weight 100 to group A and
weight 400 to group B, and you run "direct sequence read" workload in group A and B
simultaneously. Ideally, we should see 1:4 disk time differentiation for group A and B.
But actually, I see almost 1:2 disk time differentiation for group A and B. I'm looking
into this issue.
BTW, V3 works well for this case.

Thanks,
Gui
