It's not tag odering that is a win but big queue depth.  That's what you
measured and what I fully agree on.  I haven't been able to get out of
Hannes what he actually measured.

And if you'd actually look at the patchset allowing deep queues is
exactly what it allows us, and while I haven't done testing on this
patchset but only on my previous version it does get us back to use
the full potential of large arrays exactly because of that.
