Got the docs I was looking for, and indeed, it looks like 2.6.10 
introduced the scheduler change on-the-fly. Unfortunately I've only
got 2.6.8 with my distro, so I'll stay with "as" for some time, setting
antic_expire to 0 - which will come close to the "deadline" behaviour.

Got some more papers to read - perhaps "noop" would be the best choice
for 3ware controllers.
Anyone using a similar setup?
