SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/6 v4] cfq-iosched: CFQ group hierarchical scheduling and use_hierarchy interface

Hi Gui,

I have done a quick high level review. Some minor comments inline.

This seems to be redundant now? Nobody is using it?

Above comment is misleading. This service tree is now used both for
flat as well as hierarhical mode.

Can we use vdisktime boost logic for groups also? I think it can be a separate
patch in the series (the last one). Keeping it as a separate patch will
also help you to coordinate with chad's patch.

Group entity set their service tree when they get allocated and retain
this pointer even when they get deleted from serivce tree. Queue entities
seem to have it NULL when they get deleted from service tree and it
gets set again when queue is getting inserted. It would be nice if we
can fix this discrepancy and keep it consistent. I think clearing up
cfqe->service_tree is a better idea and then calculate it again for
group also.

As you are using this function for initializing group entity, possibly
rename it to init_group_entity() or init_group_cfqe() etc.

Should we make this updation of this info hierarhical?

Thanks
