I'm not really focused on performance, but this seems to be an
io-pattern dependant choice.

Higher values may help the elevators, (right ?) thus help the seeky
workloads. Lower values may certainly benefit from lower values to
really get the paths summed bandwidth.

Anyway, I can not back this with numbers. Any value will be fine with me
as a default, and I highlight that now you can also set per device
defaults like rr_min_io in hwtable.c
