For testing purposes it would be nice to have a one-line summary for
each device containing a thread ID, start timestamp, end timestamp, and
elapsed time. With that information you could evaluate the amount of
parallelism and determine where the bottlenecks are. It would give a
much more detailed picture of the entire process than the total time of
your recent patch 9.
