Fortunately there's a somewhat reassuring explanation. The commit
introducing this macro prevented seeky queues from being considered
soft real-time. And, to be more selective, it actually filtered out
only totally seeky queues, i.e., queues whose last I/O requests are
*all* random. With this error, any seeky queue was considered totally
seeky. This the broke (only) selectivity.
