Hi Gui,

Thanks a lot for some performance numbers. It seems to be a mixed chart.
Performance gains at some places and loss at others. I am curious about
that -7.0% for normal writes. Not sure what can contribute to that.

What was the value of "fairness" parameter when you ran those tests? Can you
please set fairness = 0 and re-run the tests (if you have already not done so).

By default fairness is set to 1 in V6. With fairness = 0, we should be very
close to existing CFQ behavior. If not, then we need to dive deeper and
see why variations are happening.

Is it also possible to run the same tests with V7. 

Thanks
Vivek
