    dsched - Add request polling wrapper
     * Add a request polling emulation layer to dsched. This emulated
       request polling as if a disk driver would poll for requests instead
       of requests being actively pushed down.
     * The policy->polling_func() callback is called whenever a BIO
     * A field in the diskctx that shows the current tag queue depth and the
       maximum tag queue depth (currently fixed value of 32) are used in the
       policies using request polling directly and is not enforced in the
       dsched layer. That is, a policy using request polling emulation
       should take care of not having (many) more BIOs in flight than
