Hello Ming,

I am aware that the above change does not cover all cases. That's why I wrote
in my previous e-mail that that patch is not a full solution. The reason I
posted that change anyway is because I prefer a solution that is not based on
delayed queue runs over a solution that is based on delayed queue runs
(blk_mq_delay_run_hw_queue()). My concern is that performance of a solution
based on delayed queue runs will be suboptimal.

Bart.
