mdtest may pause for 5-10 mins on ext4

Hi, all. Recenlty we ran mdtest on ext4, and observed a wired phenomenon:

After ran some mdtest cases, mdtest will pause for 5-10mins, this impacts
performance of ext4 severely. And we can not repro this on xfs.

Some information about machine:

We could also reproduced with 5.3.18 and 5.15.

We could reproduced this by running:
modprobe brd rd_nr=1 rd_size=167772160 max_part=0
/opt/tools/e2fsprogs/mkfs.ext4 -i 2048 -I 1024 -J size=20000
-Odir_index,large_dir,filetype /dev/ram0
echo `blkid /dev/ram0 |awk '{print $2}'` /mnt_ramdisk3 ext4
defaults,noatime,nodiratime,user_xattr,nofail,x-systemd.device-timeout=5 0 0 >>

mount -a
for ((i=1;i<=100;i++)) ; do  (time  /usr/local/bin/mdtest -R -C -L -F -u -z 10
-b 2 -I 1000 -u -d /mnt_ramdisk3/mdtest-$RANDOM) 2>&1 |grep -E " at |real"  ;

which mnt_ramdisk3 is mounted a ext4 file system with ram or nvme disk. This
problem occured one time per 100 mdtest cases almostly. The test result is

Any thoughts or hints about this? Let me known if any information is required.

Kind regards,
