target: Improve system responsivity during I/O
Bart Van Assche [Sun, 6 Nov 2011 17:37:23 +0000 (18:37 +0100)]
While testing ib_srpt I noticed that the target system became
rather unresponsive during intensive I/O. The patch below made
my target system responsive again during I/O without decreasing
performance.
