In fact, it's worse than that. Today, I was able to construct a case
of a 4K discard on a particular device that took 100 seconds. I did
this
by arranging to write a single copy of page 0 for every erase unit of
the device, and wrote random LBAs to the rest of the erase unit. I
suspect the
slow speed comes from the need to copy almost the entire device to
erase all the stale copies of page 0.

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <sys/ioctl.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <assert.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <linux/fs.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

char page[8192];

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
unsigned long start;
int fd;
int i;
char *page_aligned = (char *)(((unsigned long)page + 4095) & ~4095UL);
unsigned long range[2];
fd = open(argv[1], O_RDWR | O_DIRECT);
assert(fd >= 0);
range[0] = 0;
assert(ioctl(fd, BLKGETSIZE64, &range[1]) >= 0);
for (i = 0; i < range[1]; i += 4096) {
/* paranoia: incase there is any deduping */
page_aligned[0] = i;
/*
* Almost always write randomly
*/
if (i % (4*1024*1024) != 0)
assert(pwrite(fd, page_aligned, 4096,
(lrand48() % range[1]) & ~4095UL) == 4096);
else
/* except, once per erase block, write page 0 */
assert(pwrite(fd, page_aligned, 4096, 0) == 4096);
}
start = time(NULL);

/* discard exactly one page */
range[1] = 4096;
printf("Starting discard %lu!\n", start);
assert(ioctl(fd, BLKSECDISCARD, &range) >= 0);
printf("Finished discard. Took %lu!\n", time(NULL) - start);
close(fd);
}
