Subject[PATCH 14/18] SUNRPC: remove scheduling boost for "SWAPPER" tasks.
From
Date
Currently, tasks marked as "swapper" tasks get put to the front of
non-priority rpc_queues, and are sorted earlier than non-swapper tasks on
the transport's ->xmit_queue.

This is pointless as currently *all* tasks for a mount that has swap
enabled on *any* file are marked as "swapper" tasks. So the net result
is that the non-priority rpc_queues are reverse-ordered (LIFO).

This scheduling boost is not necessary to avoid deadlocks, and hurts
fairness, so remove it. If there were a need to expedite some requests,
the tk_priority mechanism is a more appropriate tool.
