I don't think it's stable enough for that yet, it's seen very little
testing outside of your own testing. Given that, it's much better that
people opt in to testing BFQ, so they at least know they can expect
crashes.

Speaking of testing, I ran into this bug:

just running the xfstest suite. It's test generic/299. Have you done
full runs of xfstest? I'd greatly recommend that for shaking out bugs.
Run a full loop with xfs, one with btrfs, and one with ext4 for better
confidence in the stability of the code.

(gdb) l *__bfq_bfqq_expire+0xb3
0x5983 is in __bfq_bfqq_expire (block/bfq-iosched.c:2664).

2663 for_each_entity(entity)
2664 entity->sched_data->in_service_entity = NULL;
2665 }
