I did the same test on my environment (2.6.31 + dm-ioband v1.13.0) and
here are the results.

      The number of sectors transferred
  writers   read    write   total
     1     800696  588600  1389296
     2     747704  430736  1178440
     3     757136  455808  1212944
     4     704888  562912  1267800
     5     788760  387672  1176432
     6     730664  495832  1226496
     7     765864  427384  1193248

I got the different results to yours, the total throughput did not
decreased according to increasing the number of writers. I've attached
the outputs of the test script. Please note that the format of
"dmsetup status" have been changed like /sys/block/dev/stat file.
