I didn't try to switch schedulers, but what I see now is once the system
is able to boot with BFQ, the I/O can still hang on I/O burst (which for
me happens to happen during VM reboot).

This may also not hang forever, but just slow down considerably. I've
noticed this inside a KVM VM, not on a real HW.
