I've noticed quite some drop of performance (around 15% in some cases) where execution of lvm2 tests took longer time - and while tests itself should not really load CPU system - the overall running time just got bigger.

Running bisect game pointed clearly to this commit:


commit 44c02a2c3dc55835e9f0d8ef73966406cd805001

    dev_ioctl(): move copyin/copyout to callers


clear revert of this commit on top of 3266b5bd97eaa72793df0b6e5a106c69ccc166c4
(recent  ~4.16-rc4)  restored timing of tests back.

I'm not sure why - so at this moment this is just a patch causing 15% longer running times on lvm2 test suite.
