Hi Ming,

As requested, here's my figures for blk_mq_improve_restart_V1:
without default SCSI_MQ, deadline scheduler, CONFIG PREEMPT off
read, rw, write IOPS
989K, 113K/113K, 835K

with default SCSI_MQ, mq-deadline scheduler, CONFIG PREEMPT off
read, rw, write IOPS
738K, 130K/130K, 686K

For axboe for-next tip (21ed538):
without default SCSI_MQ, deadline scheduler, CONFIG PREEMPT off
read, rw, write IOPS
977K, 117K/117K, 821K

with default SCSI_MQ, mq-deadline scheduler, CONFIG PREEMPT off
read, rw, write IOPS
733K, 128K/128K, 676K

All cases do not have LLDD mq exposed/enabled. So unfortunately not much
difference with your branch.

cheers,
John
