Subject[PATCH 1/3] block: add queue flag for paravirt frontend drivers
From
Date
As is the case with SSD devices, we do not want to idle in AS/CFQ when
the block device is a paravirt front-end driver. This patch adds a flag
(QUEUE_FLAG_VIRT) which should be used by front-end drivers such as
virtio_blk and xen-blkfront to indicate a paravirtualized device.
