It seems to be the fastest of the lot, and an earlier version is in use at Google. Currently the maintainer is spoon-feeding some BIO and AIO rework through maintainer reviews, and I have no idea how much of the supporting infrastructure is left to merge at this point. It's not terribly user-friendly at the moment: no dm target that would allow in-place migration, and you have to stick to a maintainer tree for continued data access (even though a pass-through shim would be sufficient for non-writeback uses).
