Hi Kashyap,

Now I have put patches for removing operating on scsi_host->host_busy
in V4[1], especially which are done in the following 3 patches:

        9221638b9bc9 scsi: avoid to hold host_busy for scsi_mq
        1ffc8c0ffbe4 scsi: read host_busy via scsi_host_busy()
        e453d3983243 scsi: introduce scsi_host_busy()

Could you run your test on V4 and see if IOPS can be improved on
