Some good news: doing my previously reported testing on the balanced
configuration completed successfully. (mkfs on large numbers of CCISS
disks, tracing to a large number of FC disks)

What is more, it appears to be a little better in terms of fewer drops &
fewer drop cases - results below are in percent drops:

blktrace:

blktrace2:

  512|  0.2

 2048|  0.0
 4096|  0.0

 The goal now will be to try and see if I can wiggle out the remaining
 0.1 or 0.2% drops...
