That 2 sockets server has been busy running other things.

I did a quick test with 1 NVMe drive to simulate 64 sector transfers.
echo 32 > /sys/block/nvme0n1/queue/max_sectors_kb

Then run fio 1M block size read that should cause a lot of splits.
As expected, no obvious difference with and without the patches.

I'll run more tests once the server is free, probably next week.

Or would you think the performance data on a PC with 1 NVMe drive is OK?

Will also run MD stripes test.
