BFQ guarantees a low latency for interactive applications in a
completely different way with respect to CFQ. On the other hand, in
terms of interface and exactly as CFQ does, BFQ exports a boolean
low_latency tunable to switch low-latency heuristics on (in BFQ, these
heuristics lowers latency for interactive and soft real-time
applications). Finally, differently from CFQ, BFQ has not other
latency tunable.

Accordingly, this commit temporarily turns all latency tunables into
fake tunables, by turning the functions for reading and writing these
tunables into functions that just generate warnings. The commit
introducing low-latency heuristics in BFQ then restores only the
boolean low_latency tunable.
