cfq-iosched: improve preemption for cooperating tasks
When testing the syslet async io approach, I discovered that CFQ sometimes didn't perform as well as expected. cfq_should_preempt() needs to better check for cooperating tasks, so fix that by allowing preemption of an equal priority queue if the recently queued request is as good a candidate for IO as the one we are currently waiting for.
