Subject[PATCH 08/57] docs: cgroup-v1/blkio-controller.rst: add a note about CFQ scheduler
The CFQ scheduler was removed on this changeset:

commit f382fb0bcef4c37dc049e9f6963e3baf204d815c
Author: Jens Axboe <>
Date: Fri Oct 12 10:14:46 2018 -0600

block: remove legacy IO schedulers

Retain the deadline documentation, as that carries over to mq-deadline
as well.

Tested-by: Ming Lei <>

Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

However, the cgroups-v1 documentation still mentions it and points
to a removed file that used to belong to such scheduler.

Add a note about that, as someone needs to fix the document pointing
to another scheduler, if cgroups-v1 blockio is not dependent of
CFQ scheduler.
