Turns out that selecting CONFIG_DEFAULT_MQ_DEADLINE is the culprit;
switching to CONFIG_DEFAULT_MQ_NONE and selecting mq-deadline after
booting manually makes the problem go away.

So there is a race condition during device init and switching the I/O
scheduler.

But the results from using mq-deadline are promising; the performance
drop I've seen on older hardware seems to be resolved:

mq iosched:
 seq read : io=13383MB, bw=228349KB/s, iops=57087
 rand read : io=12876MB, bw=219709KB/s, iops=54927
 seq write: io=14532MB, bw=247987KB/s, iops=61996
 rand write: io=13779MB, bw=235127KB/s, iops=58781
mq default:
 seq read : io=13056MB, bw=222588KB/s, iops=55647
 rand read : io=12908MB, bw=220069KB/s, iops=55017
 seq write: io=13986MB, bw=238444KB/s, iops=59611
 rand write: io=13733MB, bw=234128KB/s, iops=58532
sq default:
 seq read : io=10240MB, bw=194787KB/s, iops=48696
 rand read : io=10240MB, bw=191374KB/s, iops=47843
 seq write: io=10240MB, bw=245333KB/s, iops=61333
 rand write: io=10240MB, bw=228239KB/s, iops=57059

measured on mpt2sas with SSD devices.

Cheers,
