We need to confirm that if Marc's patch works as expected, could you
collect log via the attached script?

It could be, but reason need to investigated.

You never provide the test details(how many drives, how many disks
attached to each drive) as I asked, so I can't comment on the reason,
also no reason shows that the patch is a good fix.

My theory is simple, so far, the CPU is still much quicker than
current storage in case that IO aren't from multiple disks which are
connected to same drive.

Thanks,
Ming
