According to our initial tests on 3.10.0-693.11.6.el7.x86_64 kernel
(Centos 7.4) with Lustre 2.10.2, there is a penalty of ca. 10% in nice
workloads (1MB IO) up to 40% in 4k IOs. Tested with IOR.
It looks bad, however probably we don't need to patch the servers, as
Lustre lives in kernelspace anyway. Some kind of advisory from Intel
HPDD would be nice here.
