The main benefit of the test-iosched is the ability to determine the
timing of each request that is being dispatched and to put on hold the
real FS requests so that they won't affect the tests scenario.
It also allows each block device to determine pass/fail result taking into
account the expected behavior and the actual result.
The scheduler doesn't have to be changed per tests case. What made you
think it should be?
Currently we use the test-iosched to test the eMMC4.5 features (such as
BKOPs, packed commands and sanitize). I hope that after we will release
the tests later this week it will be clearer.
