»The multiqueue block layer finally has support for I/O scheduling. That is useful in its own right, but the real news is that it enables the merging of the long-awaited BFQ I/O scheduler. That, says block maintainer Jens Axboe, "should be ready for 4.12".«

Via LWN, and with a friendly wave to all the poor saps whose bosses think LTS distributions are a great idea and can expect to see any of this when their grandkids install RHEL 9.
