In case someone would like to see the results of the measurements I ran,
these results can be found here:

Two important conclusions from the data in that PDF document are as follows:
- A small but significant performance improvement for the traditional
  SCSI mid-layer (use_blk_mq=N).
- A very significant performance improvement for multithreaded
  workloads with use_blk_mq=Y. As an example, the number of I/O
  operations per second reported for the random write test increased
  with 170%. That means 2.7 times the performance
  of use_blk_mq=N.

I think this means the scsi-mq patches are ready for wider use.
