Patch adds an association between iocontext ioprio and the ioprio of a
request. This value is set in blk_rq_set_prio which takes the request and
the ioc as arguments. If the ioc is valid in blk_rq_set_prio then the
iopriority of the request is set as the iopriority of the ioc. In
init_request_from_bio a check is made to see if the ioprio of the bio is
valid and if so then the request prio comes from the bio.

Should we use ioprio_best() here?  If req->ioprio and bio_prio()
disagree one side has explicitly asked for a higher priority.

It's a good question - but if priority has been set in the bio, it makes
sense that that would take priority over the general setting for the
task/io context. So I think the patch is correct as-is.

Adam, you'll want to rewrite the commit message though. A good commit
message should explain WHY the change is made, not detail the code
implementation of it.
