SubjectRe: performance changes on 78373b73: -46.6% fsmark.files_per_sec, and few more
Thank you for the report.

Interesting to me as well.
Maybe, I suspect f2fs_submit_merged_bio(sbi, DATA, WRITE); in
f2fs_write_data_pages was called too many from multiple threads
at the same time, which results in bio splits.

Not sure, so, at this moment, I'll revert this patch. Once finishing
analysis on this issue, I'd be better repost the patch later.

Thank you,
