iodepth=8 will have no effect if you don't also set a different IO
engine, otherwise you would be using read(2) to fetch the data. So add
ioengine=libaio to take advantage of a higher queue depth as well.

Also, I didn't see Chris mention this, but if you have a newer intel box
you can use hw accellerated crc32c instead. For some reason my test box
always loads crc32c and not crc32c-intel, so I need to do that manually.
That helps a lot with higher transfer rates. You can check support for
hw crc32c by checking for the 'sse4_2' flag in /proc/cpuinfo.
