IIRC, with vanilla CFQ, sequential writing can overwhelm random readers,
too.

I'm basing this assumption on the observations I made on both OpenSuse
11.1 and Ubuntu 9.10 alpha6 which I described in my posting on LKML
titled: "Poor desktop responsiveness with background I/O-operations" of
2009-09-20.

Thus, I'm posting this to show that your work is greatly appreciated,
given the rather disappointig status quo of Linux's fairness when it
comes to disk IO time.

I hope that your efforts lead to a change in performance of current
userland applications, the sooner, the better.


Thanks
Ulrich
