Kernel 3.14.19 > http://lwn.net/Articles/612297/

Hi,
here is a first good side effect of our effort for getting bfq merged into mainline :)
Two developers reported a regression with two git tasks, which gave us the opportunity to further improve throughput boosting with the workloads generated by these tasks. The result is this v7r5.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Improve throughput boosting by idling the device
    only for processes that, in addition to perform sequential I/O,
    are I/O-bound (apart from weight-raised queues, for which idling
    is always performed to guarantee them a low latency).
  • IMPROVEMENT: Improve throughput boosting by depriving processes
    that cooperate often of weight-raising.
  • CODE IMPROVEMENT: Pass of improvement of the readability of both
    comments and actual code.

We have noticed that Kernel 3.14 did not work with the VMWare virtualization:
we prepared an unofficial solutiion that has been full tested on ROSA Fresh R3
