Some of idle LUNs shouldn't be treated equally as other LUNs which need
to serve.

Also as I mentioned, the original RR style isn't better than the new
way actually, since now we handle queues in sort of FIFO style, thanks
wait queue.

Not mentioning big CPU utilization is consumed unnecessarily for iterating
over all queues even though there is only one active queue, is this fair from
system view?
