[BLOCK] elevator: default choice selection
My previous default iosched patch did a poor job dealing with the 'elevator=' boot-time option. The old behavior falls back to the compiled-in default if the requested one is not registered at boot time. This patch dynamically evaluates which default to use, and emits a suitable error message when the requested scheduler is not available. It also does the 'as' -> 'anticipatory' conversion before elevator registration, which along with a modified registration function, allows it to correctly indicate which default scheduler is in use. Tested for a range of boot options on 2.6.16-rc1-mm2. Signed-off-by: Nate Diller <nate.diller@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>
