This is the per-I/O equivalent of the ioprio_set system call.
See the following link for performance implications on a SATA HDD:

First patch factors ioprio_check_cap function out of ioprio_set system call to
also be used by the aio ioprio interface.

Second patch converts kiocb ki_hint field to a u16 to avoid kiocb bloat.

Third patch passes ioprio hint from aio iocb to kiocb and enables block_dev
usage of the per I/O ioprio feature.

v2: merge patches
    validate intended use with IOCB_IOPRIO
    add linux-api and linux-block to cc

v3: add ioprio_check_cap function
    convert kiocb ki_hint to u16
    use ioprio_check_cap when adding ioprio to kiocb in aio.c

v4: handle IOCB_IOPRIO in aio_prep_rw
    note patch 3 depends on patch 1 in commit msg

Adam Manzanares (3):
  block: add ioprio_check_cap function
  fs: Convert kiocb rw_hint from enum to u16
  fs: Add aio iopriority support for block_dev
