I'm guessing your problem is that bonnie dirtied tons of data before you
killed it, so it has to flush it out. If you run out of request entries,
you will get to sleep uninterruptibly on those while the data is
flushing. I don't see anything unexpected here, it is normal behaviour.

This is what is happening here, after you kill it.
