Next: [PATCH 1/2] cfq-iosched: fix tree-wide handling of rq_noidle
From: Corrado Zoccolo on 7 Jul 2010 12:00
RQ_NOIDLE flag is meaningful and should be honored for SYNC_WORKLOAD,
without further checks.
RQ_NOIDLE can be used to mark the last request of a sequence for which
- we want to idle between the requests of the sequence, to keep locality
- we don't want to idle after the sequence, because we know that no new
nearby requests will follow, so we should switch servicing other
This patch fixes this behaviour, making it similar to how it behaved
before 8e55063, but still fixing the corner cases that were the
motivation for it.
