block: make unplug timer trace event correspond to the schedule() unplug
Jens Axboe [Sat, 16 Apr 2011 11:51:05 +0000 (13:51 +0200)]
It's a pretty close match to what we had before - the timer triggering
would mean that nobody unplugged the plug in due time, in the new
scheme this matches very closely what the schedule() unplug now is.
It's essentially the difference between an explicit unplug (IO unplug)
or an implicit unplug (timer unplug, we scheduled with pending IO
queued).
