block: Optimal I/O limit wrapper
Implement blk_limits_io_opt() and make blk_queue_io_opt() a wrapper around it. DM needs this to avoid poking at the queue_limits directly. Signed-off-by: Martin K. Petersen <martin.petersen@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Mike Snitzer <snitzer@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
