Subject: ioprio_get(2) outdated
Date: Thu, 20 May 2021 12:30:45 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

please update ioprio_get(2) to the today more common Multi-Queue Block 
IO Queueing Mechanism (blk-mq). In particular:

> These system calls have an effect only when used in conjunction
> with an I/O scheduler that supports I/O priorities.  As at kernel
> 2.6.17 the only such scheduler is the Completely Fair Queuing
> (CFQ) I/O scheduler.

As far as I know BFQ is the only mq-iosched which supports (read-) 
priorities. See also [1]. The kernel Documentation/block/ioprio.txt is 
outdated as well, I guess I'll send an email there too.

Thanks and kind regards
Tycho Kirchner
