None. I actually wrote it when the block layer had a bug when dm was
used on top of the !merge case, and I decided to send it out as there had been
no discussion about disabling this by default on the existing blk-mq
drivers.

At least for my qemu/kvm setup it doesn't make a difference either way,
although not doing the cheap merge doesn't like the right kind of optimization
to me.
