Hi Gui,

I am not able to understand why do we need above changes?

BFQ scheduler already takes care of selecting an RT queue for dispatch (if
the queue is entitled to).

In case a new RT queue backlogged while a BE queue is being served, we
do preemtion check to make sure RT queue gets to run as soon as possible.

In fact I think that busy_rt_queues infrastructure is also redundant and
I plan to get rid of it. 

Can you please help me understand what use case are you addressing with
above patch?

Thanks
Vivek
