Oh, I am in no-way suggesting don't use bio_associate_current(). I am 
just trying to analyze the performance issue right now and saying that
as far as performance is concenred, one will get it back even if one
does not use bio_associate_current().

Yes but one needs to use bio_associate_current() to make sure bio's
are attributed to right cgroup and associate bio to right task. This
should help solving the long standing issue of task losing its ioprio
if dm-crypt target is in the stack.
