Subject[PATCH 1/4] cfq-iosched: Keep track of average think time for the sync-noidle workload.
Date
This patch uses an average think time for the entirety of the sync-noidle
workload to determine whether or not to idle on said workload. This brings
it more in line with the policy for the sync queues in the sync workload.

Testing shows that this provided an overall increase in throughput for
a mixed workload on my hardware RAID array.
