Another thing we could try is to use 'none' via the following command:

echo none > /sys/block/sdh/queue/scheduler #suppose 'sdh' points to the usb storage disk

Because USB storage HBA is single hw queue, which depth is 1. This way
should change to dispatch IO in the order of bio submission.

Andrea, could you switch io scheduler to none and update us if difference
can be made?

Thanks,
Ming
