That's only used for async open. Are you doing many
opens per second ?

The two above are also not needed. Not for about 15 years.

The above might help.

2 above not needed. With aio enabled sendfile is disabled.

Delete all the crap above first :-).
Then start trying to copy locally to the tmpfs share to see what
the max local copy speed it.
