    No, we do have evidence: execution time of the TRIM commands on the SSD.

    The one-range-at-a-time is incredibly slow compared to multiple ranges at a time.
    That slowness comes from somewhere, with about 99.9% certainty that it is due
    to the drive performing slow flash erase cycles.

    I think perhaps we should do the batching as much as possible,
    and then split them into single ranges for LLDs that cannot handle multi-ranges.

    Way more efficient that way.
