Hi Vivek,

I did some tests on my *old* i386 box(with two concurrent dd running), and notice
that IO Controller doesn't work fine in such situation. But it can work perfectly
in my *new* x86 box. I dig into this problem, and i guess the major reason is that
my *old* i386 box is too slow, it can't ensure two running ioqs are always backlogged.
If that is the case, I happens to have a thought. when an ioq uses up it time slice,
we don't expire it immediately. May be we can give a piece of bonus time for idling
to wait new requests if this ioq's finish time and its ancestor's finish time are all
much smaller than other entities in each corresponding service tree.
