      [PATCH] Update cfq io scheduler to time sliced design · 22e2c507

      This updates the CFQ io scheduler to the new time sliced design (cfq
      v3).  It provides full process fairness, while giving excellent
      aggregate system throughput even for many competing processes.  It
      supports io priorities, either inherited from the cpu nice value or set
      directly with the ioprio_get/set syscalls.  The latter closely mimic
      set/getpriority.
      
      This import is based on my latest from -mm.
