Based on profile information, the problem seems related to the number of
lookups processed by bricks (they take 99% of the time). Kernel sends a lookup
for each path component before every operation. Given that this tests creates a
nested directory structure, the number of lookups grows linearly as the depth
is greater. The total number of lookups is quadratic on the depth of the

I see two possible issues here:

1. md-stat should prevent most of the lookup requests to reach the bricks.
2. There are many more lookups than expected (even considering a quadratic

I'll run a test with latest version and see if any of the previous problems
