Hi Eric,

Could you please run this test with 'journal_async_commit' flag.  In my
previous test, this feature can dramatically improve the performance of
uninitialized extent conversion.

I have sent an email to do a similar test [1].  In that email, I do a
similar test and the journal_async_commit flag quite can improve the
performance.
