Thanks Gui. Yes, if there is a single ioq, this pid will reflect the
pid of the process who caused the creation of the io queue and later
requests from all the other processess will go into same queue.

In fact cfq also has the same issue for async queues where async queue
will store the pid when it is created later all other processes of same
prio level will use it.

So if you think displaying "0" is better than displaying the the pid of
the process who created the queue, then I will include this patch. Right
now I don't have very strong opinion about it.

Thanks
Vivek
