It isn't. In fact, the current queue in the kernel is too short.
You also assume that the drive can store multiple requests and reorder them
in the first place. That only works with reasonably-new SCSI disks which
support tagged queuing (and SCSI host adapters which do).
It does NOT work with IDE anything.
