I'm stress-testing scini.ko on force-load-enabled kernel now:
add/remove volume, change vol size, connect/disconnect devices, migrate 
VMs ...
while top VMs issue heavy random readwrite IOPS.

Before make run, i did git-checkout revision which as close as possible 
to Ubuntu's release:
Ubuntu Git: 4.15.0-33.36~16.04.1 Ubuntu-hwe-4.15.0-33.36_16.04.1    4.15.18
Proxmox Git: 2018-08-24  bump version to 4.15.18-22

Doing a diff on 2 kernel's abi files, and on 2 kernel's config files, i 
read that there are major differences on NVME, BRIDGE_NETFILTER being 
moved from modules to internal.
Other things seem the same.

Hope this sdc works well, better than nothing works.

Thank you for spending your time support me.
Best regards.
