[PATCH 18/20] blkio: arm idle timer even if think time is great then time slice left

From: Vivek Goyal
Date: Tue Nov 03 2009 - 18:44:35 EST

o Now we plan to wait for a queue to get backlogged before we expire it. So
we need to arm slice timer even if think time is greater than slice left.
if process sends next IO early and time slice is left, we will dispatch it
otherwise we will expire the queue and move on to next queue.
