[PATCH] Update cfq io scheduler to time sliced design
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. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

+ * Helper functions for setting/querying io priorities of processes. The
+ * system calls closely mimmick getpriority/setpriority, see the man page for
+ * those. The prio argument is a composite of prio class and prio data, where
+ * the data argument has meaning within that class. The standard scheduling
+ * classes have 8 distinct prio levels, with 0 being the highest prio and 7
+ * being the lowest.
+ *
+ * IOW, setting BE scheduling class with prio 2 is done ala:
+ *
+ * unsigned int prio = (IOPRIO_CLASS_BE << IOPRIO_CLASS_SHIFT) | 2;
+ *
+ * ioprio_set(PRIO_PROCESS, pid, prio);
+ *
