There is one possible concern that could be exacerbated by other changes in 
the system: if the application is running close to the bare minimum number 
of requests allocated in io_setup(), the per cpu reference counters will 
have a hard time batching things.  It might be worth testing with an 
increased number of requests being allocated if this is the case.
