I see...thanks Ferry! With your testing, are you writing to the device's
internal storage (ie UFS, eMMC, etc...), or did you use a ramdisk as well?

If not with a ramdisk, we might want to give that a try to avoid the
storage path being the bottleneck. You can use "dd" to create an empty
file, and then just use that as the LUN's backing file.

Thanks
