cfq-iosched: fix queue depth detection

CFQ's detection of queueing devices assumes a non-queuing device and detects
if the queue depth reaches a certain threshold.  Under some workloads (e.g.
synchronous reads), CFQ effectively forces a unit queue depth, thus defeating
the detection logic.  This leads to poor performance on queuing hardware,
since the idle window remains enabled.

This patch inverts the sense of the logic: assume a queuing-capable device,
and detect if the depth does not exceed the threshold.
