blk-throttle: add latency target support
One hard problem adding .low limit is to detect idle cgroup. If one cgroup doesn't dispatch enough IO against its low limit, we must have a mechanism to determine if other cgroups dispatch more IO. We added the think time detection mechanism before, but it doesn't work for all workloads. Here we add a latency based approach. We already have mechanism to calculate latency threshold for each IO size. For every IO dispatched from a cgorup, we compare its latency against its threshold and record the info. If most IO latency is below threshold (in the code I use 75%), the cgroup could be treated idle and other cgroups can dispatch more IO. Currently this latency target check is only for SSD as we can't calcualte the latency target for hard disk. And this is only for cgroup leaf node so far.
