Sorry to get into this discussion but why can't we use the deadline

We can leave the general kernel scheduler on CFQ and then add a patch
which sets deadline for each block device in the kernel (not sure if
possible). Or we can do this with a small tuning package like redhad
does with it's storage profile. It would just be a small script which
executes at the end of runlevel 2.

for i in /sys/block/*/queue/scheduler; do
  echo deadline >$i 2>/dev/null
