Modern? No. ;-) I usually use xfstests (all of them, not just the aio
group), the libaio test harness, and then hand it off to our performance
team to stress the code under benchmarking workloads. Oh, and usually
targeted testing for the thing that I'm working on.

I'll put a couple of kernels together to hand off to our performance
team, though I don't know how much time they have at present.
