Unless Kashyap is not happy we need to consider getting this in to
Linus now because we are seeing HPE servers that keep hanging now with
the original commit now upstream.

Kashyap, are you good with the v3 patchset or still concerned with
performance. I was getting pretty good IOPS/sec to individual SSD
drives set up as jbod devices on the megaraid_sas.

With larger I/O sizes like 1MB I was getting good MB/sec and not seeing
a measurable performance impact.

I dont have the hardware you have to mimic your configuration.

Thanks
Laurence
