When blk-mq and scsi-mq were introduced to boost SAS SSDs over
1 million IOPS, this was purposely kept off, because it generated
a noticeable 3-12 us latency blip whenever the "fast_mix" code ran
out of bits. If Jens' patch changes the default to be enabled for
all scsi-mq users, that'll be a change for the newer legacy
scsi-mq users (except for users that don't trust the default and
always set the value in sysfs).
