Totally unrelated to the writeback, but the merged big 512k requests
actually adds up some measurable I/O scheduler latencies and they in
turn slightly diminish the fairness that cfq could provide with
smaller max request size. Probably even more measurable with SSDs (but
then SSDs are even faster).
