Subject[PATCH v7 3/4] block: Add API for urgent request handling
Date
This patch add support in block & elevator layers for handling
urgent requests. The decision if a request is urgent or not is taken
by the scheduler. Request is marked as urgent in cmd_flags (by the
scheduler) with a new flag - REQ_URGENT.
Urgent request notification is passed to the underlying
block device driver (eMMC for example). Block device driver may decide to
interrupt the currently running low priority request to serve the new
urgent request. By doing so READ latency is greatly reduced in read&write
collision scenarios.

Note that if the current scheduler doesn't implement the urgent request
mechanism, this code path is never activated.
