OK. When I was testing CFQ I saw some odd behaviour, such as a 100%
cessation of reads for periods of up to ten seconds.
So there is some sort of bug in there, and until that is understood we should
not conclude anything at all about CFQ from this testing.

Well I'm showing about seven more AS patches since 2.5.63-mm1 already, so
this is a bit of a moving target. Sorry.
