The allowed range for BFQ weights is currently 1..1000 with 100 being
the default. There is no apparent reason to not accept weight
adjustments of same ratio on both sides of the default. This change
makes the attribute domain consistent with other cgroup (v2) knobs with
the weight semantics.

This extension of the range does not restrict existing configurations
(quite the opposite). This may affect setups where weights >1000 were
attempted to be set but failed with the default 100. Such cgroups would
attain their intended weight now. This is a changed behavior but it
rectifies the situation (similar intention to the
commit 69d7fde5909b ("blkcg: use CGROUP_WEIGHT_* scale for io.weight on
the unified hierarchy") for CFQ formerly (and v2 only)).

Additionally, the changed range does not imply all IO workloads can be
really controlled to achieve the widest possible ratio 1:10^4.

- collect acks, reformat commit message
- effectively a resend

Given the length of addressee list from get_maintainers.pl, I'd break
possible tie (if there are no objections) by asking this being routed
via Jens's/linux-block tree.
