Hi Gui,

I have kept the behavior same as CFQ. I guess reason behind this is that
when a new queue is scheduled in, first request completion might take more
time as head of the disk might be quite a distance away (due to previous
queue) and one probably does not want to charge the new queue for that
first seek time. That's the reason we start the queue slice when first
request has completed.

Thanks
Vivek
