Again, I would combine this with the previous patch.

I'm not sure if the term "read latency" is sufficient here. Is this
the latency between sending a request and getting a response or
between sending the request and when the data actually becomes
available?

Moreover, is it the worst-case latency or the average latency?

Same questions as for the read latency apply here.
