SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/2] cfq-iosched: fixing RQ_NOIDLE handling.

Actually in this patch, I was thinking we can probably get rid of
RQ_NOIDLE flag and just check for WRITE_SYNC. Any WRITE_SYNC queue
gets served on sync-noidle tree. I am wondering will we not face jbd
thread issues with direct writes also? If yes, then not special casing
direct IO writes and treat them same as O_SYNC writes will make sense.

I really wished that we had some blktrace of some standard workloads
stored somewhere which we could simply replay using "btreplay" and come
to some kind of conclusion whenever we are faced with taking such
decisions.

Thanks
Vivek
