Here the results without patch queue:

Version  1.03       ------Sequential Output------ --Sequential Input- --Random-
                     -Per Chr- --Block-- -Rewrite- -Per Chr- --Block-- --Seeks--
Machine        Size K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP  /sec %CP

                 16G 52042  98 220931 93 107715 32 55939  98 298810 42  1543   3

For afdbench: 5336.41 files per second 15.63 MiB/s

So it seems that for afdbench the ext4-patch-queue is a slowdown.

I forgot to mention that for bonnie ext4-patch-queue reduces CPU-load
a lot. For block writting it is nearly halved.
