In case someone would like to see the results of the measurements I ran,
these results can be found here:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1YQOreL3_FxUXFMSjhmNDBNNTg.

Two important conclusions from the data in that PDF document are as follows:
- A small but significant performance improvement for the traditional
SCSI mid-layer (use_blk_mq=N).
- A very significant performance improvement for multithreaded
workloads with use_blk_mq=Y. As an example, the number of I/O
operations per second reported for the random write test increased
with 170%. That means 2.7 times the performance
of use_blk_mq=N.

I think this means the scsi-mq patches are ready for wider use.

Bart.
