+What:          /sys/block/<device>/iosched/target_latency
+Date:          March 2012
+contact:       Tao Ma <boyu.mt@taobao.com>
+Description:
+               The /sys/block/<device>/iosched/target_latency only exists
+               when the user sets cfq to /sys/block/<device>/scheduler.
+               It contains an estimated latency time for the cfq. cfq will
+               use it to calculate the time slice used for every task.
