Note to self: build the darn thing after last minute changes.

Block: Delay overloading of CFQ queues to improve read latency.

Introduce a delay maximum dispatch timestamp, and stamp it when:
1. we encounter a known seeky or possibly new sync IO queue.
2. the current queue may go idle and we're draining async IO.
3. we have sync IO in flight and are servicing an async queue.
4 we are not the sole user of disk.
Disallow exceeding quantum if any of these events have occurred recently.

Protect this behavioral change with a "desktop_dispatch" knob and default
it to "on".. providing an easy means of regression verification prior to
hate-mail dispatch :) to CC list.
