Subject[PATCH] virtio-blk: make the queue depth configurable
Date
The current virtio block sets a queue depth of 64.  With a
sufficiently fast device, using a queue depth of 256 can double the
IOPS which can be sustained. So make the queue depth something which
can be set at module load time or via a kernel boot-time parameter.
