Re: CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT cause slow direct write speed to usb stick

my problem was, that write speed to the device is got really slow from
7 Mb/s to 250 Kb/s, so 16.76 Mb/sec is probably the speed limitation of
the uSD Card or is close to that. Do you activated blk-mq for scsi in
kernel config or in boot parameters?
