Hi Gui,

Will new preempton logic of traversing up the hiearchy so that both new
queue and old queue are at same level to take a preemption decision not
take care of above scenario?

Please have a look at bfq_find_matching_entity().

At the same time we probably don't want to preempt the non-rt queue
with an RT queue in sibling group until and unless sibling group is an
RT group.

		root
		/  \
	   BEgrpA  BEgrpB
	      |     |	
	  BEioq1   RTioq2

Above we got two BE group A and B and assume ioq in group A is being
served and then an RT request in group B comes. Because group B is an
BE class group, we should not preempt the queue in group A.

Thanks
Vivek
