Subject: Re: [PATCH] UBI: Block: Add blk-mq support

Hi Richard,

Maybe you can explain a bit better what's this all about?

Both the commit that introduces blk-mq and the paper on it talk about
high IOPS devices, multi-core, NUMA systems. I'm not sure this is the
case for UBI-based devices.

Probably some numbers would help us decide. Does the patch increases the
dynamic memory footprint? Is there any performance benefit?

I kind of like the negative diffstat, but the code doesn't look cleaner
or simpler.

In other words, we need a good reason before we agree on making this
"zen style" driver more complex.
