Subject[PATCH IMPROVEMENT/BUGFIX 0/1] block, bfq: address starvation caused by tag consumption
Hi Jens, all,
here's the patch I anticipated in my last email. It addresses
(serious) starvation problems caused by request-tag exhaustion, as
explained in more detail in the commit message. I started from the
solution in the function kyber_limit_depth, but then I had to define
more articulate limits, to counter starvation also in cases not
covered in kyber_limit_depth.

If this solution proves to be effective, I'm willing to port it
somehow to the other schedulers.
