Just to let you know that I know how to reproduce the high I/O of plasmashell and continuous calls to Kservice. You can reproduce it just having opened the vivaldi web browser. (I never though it could be a problem). If it goes to a webpage that still uses flash, the effect is even bigger. F5700774: plasmashell_disk.png <https://phabricator.kde.org/F5700774>.
