SubjectRe: performance drop after using blkcg

Yes, slice_idle is disabled.

I have done the same test on 3 different type of boxes,and all of them
show a performance drop(30%-40%) after using blkcg. Though they
have different type of disk, all the storage they use are traditional
devices(e.g."HP EG0146FAWHU", "IBM-ESXS").

Could you please explain more on this? How to adjust the code? I have test
the following code piece, the result is we lost group differentiation.

cfq_group_served() {
if (iops_mode(cfqd))
charge = cfqq->slice_dispatch;
cfqg->vdisktime += cfq_scale_slice(charge, cfqg);
