Hi Paolo,

Hope you are doing great!

I was wondering if you got a chance to post these patches to LKML for
review and inclusion... (No hurry, of course!)

Also, since your fixes address the performance issues in BFQ, do you
have any thoughts on whether they can be adapted to CFQ as well, to
benefit the older stable kernels that still support CFQ?

Thank you!
