If we don't dispatch enough requests, disk can't reach the max
bandwidth. As we don't know the max bandwidth, we over estimate the
bandwidth and dispatch more requests. This way the disk can reach the
max bandwidth slowly. The downside is this can introduce fairness issue,
but since we only over estimate 1/8 extra bandwidth, the fairness issue
isn't big. But again, this could cause fairness issue for specific
workloads.
