Subject[PATCH 3/3 for-5.4/block] iocost: bump up default latency targets for hard disks
The default hard disk param sets latency targets at 50ms.  As the
default target percentiles are zero, these don't directly regulate
vrate; however, they're still used to calculate the period length -
100ms in this case.

This is excessively low. A SATA drive with QD32 saturated with random
IOs can easily reach avg completion latency of several hundred msecs.
A period duration which is substantially lower than avg completion
latency can lead to wildly fluctuating vrate.

Let's bump up the default latency targets to 250ms so that the period
duration is sufficiently long.
