parentblock, bfq: make lookup_next_entity push up vtime on expirations (diff)
block, bfq: remove direct switch to an entity in higher class
If the function bfq_update_next_in_service is invoked as a consequence of the activation or requeueing of an entity, say E, and finds out that E belongs to a higher-priority class than that of the current next-in-service entity, then it sets next_in_service directly to E. But this may lead to anomalous schedules, because E may happen not be eligible for service, because its virtual start time is higher than the system virtual time for its service tree. This commit addresses this issue by simply removing this direct switch.
