Here's the exact same TRIM ranges, but issued with *two* extents
per TRIM command, and again *without* the "sleep 1" between them:

Beginning TRIM operations..
Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 686 sectors (0 MB)
Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 236 sectors (0 MB)
Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 2186 sectors (1 MB)

Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 1086 sectors (1 MB)
Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 1658 sectors (1 MB)
Trimming 2 free extents encompassing 14250 sectors (7 MB)
Done.

[ 1529.958442] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1530.028356] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 151077251 cycles

Next, with *four* extents per TRIM:

Beginning TRIM operations..
Trimming 4 free extents encompassing 922 sectors (0 MB)
Trimming 4 free extents encompassing 4392 sectors (2 MB)
Trimming 4 free extents encompassing 2580 sectors (1 MB)
Trimming 4 free extents encompassing 15908 sectors (8 MB)
Done.
[ 1728.923119] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1728.923343] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 460590 cycles
[ 1728.975082] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1729.087266] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 242429200 cycles
[ 1729.170167] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1729.282718] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 243229428 cycles
[ 1729.382328] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1729.481364] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 214012942 cycles

And with *eight* extents per TRIM:
Beginning TRIM operations..
Trimming 8 free extents encompassing 5314 sectors (3 MB)
Trimming 8 free extents encompassing 18488 sectors (9 MB)
Done.
[ 1788.289669] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1788.290247] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 1228539 cycles
[ 1788.327223] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1788.440490] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 244773243 cycles

And finally, with everything in a single TRIM:

Beginning TRIM operations..
Trimming 16 free extents encompassing 23802 sectors (12 MB)
Done.
[ 1841.561147] ata_qc_issue: ATA_CMD_DSM starting
[ 1841.563217] trim_completed: ATA_CMD_DSM took 4458480 cycles

Notice how the first TRIM of each group above shows an artificially
short completion time, because the firmware seems to return "done"
before it's really done. Subsequent TRIMs seem to have to wait
for the previous one to really complete, and thus give more reliable
timing data for our purposes.

Cheers
