Little things that matter in language design
Are there performance comparison numbers with/without this change? How much of a speedup is it likely to be?
Scatterlist chaining (performance)

I was also interested in that. There doesn't seem to be any direct posting of perf. numbers, but it does hint at it indirectly (from http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/9/251):
"""Performance wise, it's meant to help higher end hardware that need 2-4mb
(or bigger) commands to get good performance. That also includes things
like tapes that have big block sizes, getting a command of the right
size there is the difference between good and abysmal performance."""
