Hi Vivek,

I think here you should make sure that when updating cfqq->slice_end, cfqq->slice_end doesn't 
equal to 0. Because if cfqq->slice_end == 0, cfq_slice_expired() just charge for 1 jiffy, but
if cfqq->slice_end is updated when it equals to 0(first request still in the air), at that time
cfqq->slice_start == 0, and slice_used is charged as "jiffies - cfqq->slice_start". Following
patch fixes this bug.
