CFQ related problem should be solved - probably device-mapper core
have to provide some help. (It is not only about dm-crypt,
lot of situations when IO is submitted from different internal process.
The proposed patch is not the proper and complete way how to solve it.)

For the per-cpu patch - I am waiting for replay, apparently some
additional work there is needed.
But I would like to solve it ASAP.
