Subject: Re: [RFC, PATCH] cfq-iosched: remove redundant queuing detection code

This sounds like a good idea to me, and it appears the same number of
requests will be used to detect command queuing.  I'm surprised we can't
just query each device to detect this, honestly.

One thing you missed, though, was removing the CFQ_HW_QUEUE_MIN define.

Cheers,
Jeff
