2.6.10-rc3-mm1 patch:


2.6-BK patch:



- Kill the spare queue logic

- wait_request should not imply that queue must be allowed to allocate a
  request, otherwise a write could quickly flood the queue. Add
  must_alloc to handle that and make it one-shot.

- Turn on/off idle window based on process think time and seek time.
  Improve idle timer logic. The seek/think time updates toggle the
  idle_window flag and increase queuing depth if we disable the idle

- Improve SCSI requeing logic. Add request fully back into cfq queue but
  mark it as next service once this queue gets slice time again.

- More preemption fixes. Allow new sync io to preempt equal priority
  async io to improve reader fairness.
