Yes, I just did the test on a partition without raid on the same SSD.
Then there is hardly any difference if using discard or not. So it is not
the problem of the SSD.

It must be hanging somewhere in kernel. I once had an strace running
on a rm command that was deleting thousand of small files and even the
output of the strace command was stuck:

18:31:19.776588 unlinkat(7, "2K-3-4-16--207", 0) = 0
18:31:19.776699 unlinkat(7, "2K-3-4-16--44", 0) = 0
18:31:19.776808 unlinkat(7, "2K-3-4-16--1476", 0) = 0
18:31:19.776919 unlinkat(7, "2K-3-4-16--1277", 0

And when it continued after several minutes being frozen, the time
given by strace was still 18:31:19.xxxx as if it did not hang.
These hang occur when deleting lots of small files. But they not only
effect the process doing the deleting, other process are also effected.
When I tried to open a file on a tmpfs disk in another shell it too
was stuck for several minutes.

Regards,
Holger
