Subject[PATCH 10/18] io-conroller: Prepare elevator layer for single queue schedulers
Date
Elevator layer now has support for hierarchical fair queuing. cfq has
been migrated to make use of it and now it is time to do groundwork for
noop, deadline and AS.

noop deadline and AS don't maintain separate queues for different processes.
There is only one single queue. Effectively one can think that in hierarchical
setup, there will be one queue per cgroup where requests from all the
processes in the cgroup will be queued.

Generally io scheduler takes care of creating queues. Because there is
only one queue here, we have modified common layer to take care of queue
creation and some other functionality. This special casing helps in keeping
the changes to noop, deadline and AS to the minimum.
