Low priority I/O for background tasks

Registered by Krzysztof Lichota on 2007-01-03

CFQ disk scheduler allows assigning priorities for disk I/O separately for each process. This can be used to assign lowest priority to disk intensive background tasks (like updating slocate database, file indexing in Beagle or installing packages in Synaptic) in order to improve responsiveness and desktop experience for user.
