[PATCH] cfq-iosched: many performance fixes
This is a collection of patches that greatly improve CFQ performance in some circumstances. - Change the idling logic to only kick in after a request is done and we are deciding what to do. Before the idling included the request service time, so it was hard to adjust. Now it's true think/idle time. - Take advantage of TCQ/NCQ/queueing for seeky sync workloads, but keep it in control for sync and sequential (or close to) workloads. - Expire queues immediately and move on to other busy queues, if we are not going to idle after the current one finishes. - Don't rearm idle timer if there are no busy queues. Just leave the system idle. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>
