No. I recreated the data and the regression disappeared.

I dumped trace data of fio and found the sync read isn't really sequential. I
create many processes and every process could read a group of files. The trace
shows fio reads a record of a file, then switch to another file to read. My
original assumption is a process reads the complete file sequentially and then
read the 2nd file. Now I upgrade fio the latest version and add parameter
file_service_type=random:4000000 to rerun all testing.
