That assumes the 512k requests is created by merging.  We have enough
workloads that create large I/O from the get go, and not splitting them
and eventually merging them again would be a big win.  E.g. I'm
currently looking at a distributed block device which uses internal 4MB
chunks, and increasing the maximum request size to that dramatically
increases the read performance.
