SubjectRE: [PATCH v1 0/4]mmc: enable eMMC4.41 new feature background operations and HPI

My understanding:
If BKOPS feature is not enabled, the background operations will be started when card handles some read or write command. This will impact read/write performance. If BKOPS is enabled, driver can check whether need to do a BKOPS each time after card handled a read/write command. If need, driver can start BKOPS as soon as possible when user request is empty. This will can improve read/write performance.
So I think, anyhow background operations can improve the performance, but only can be seen when your test card need to do a background operations. If your card needn't, there will be no performance gain I think. Driver will works as normal.
BTW, the BKOPS is an operational features for eMMC4.41 card, to ensure whether the card support this feature, check ext_csd[502].

Right now I didn't know how to do a precise measurement. Maybe keep on transferring large data for a long time with a card which enabled/or not the BKOPS feature can help to get some measurement data.

Thanks
