Hi Vivek,

Here are some performance numbers generated by fio test. It seems V9 performance is better
than V8 especially for write case.

Normal Read | Random Read | Normal Write | Random Write
V8(Avg of 3 timers) 64667 KiB/s 3387 KiB/s 59197 KiB/s 9327 KiB/s

V9(Avg of 3 timers) 65947 KiB/s 3528 KiB/s 61654 KiB/s 9744 KiB/s

Performance +2.0% +4.1% +4.2% +4.5%
