  Hi Vivek,

  I re-run the fio test under V6 for normal reads and writes with fairness == 0.
  It seems the performance gets a little better for normal writes than before.
  

  Mode                    Normal read   |   Random read   |   Normal write   |   Random write

  2.6.31-rc1              53,547KiB/s       2,894KiB/s        44,088KiB/s        8,450KiB/s

  V6(fairness = 0)        53,199KiB/s       2,847KiB/s        41,898KiB/s        8,582KiB/s

  Performance		  0%		    -1.6%             -4.9%		 +1.5%
