I poked around and it should be safe to not check for ioprio valid
at this point. ioprio_valid only checks to see if the ioprio is
not IOPRIO_CLASS_NONE. The request by default has a ioprio of none
so if the ioc has ioprio of none we are not changing anything.

The locations in the code that I found where the ioc prio is set are
either filtered through the syscall handler, which checks for invalid
priority combinations, or have valid priority values.

Take care,
Adam
