Could you add brackets to the 7|IOPRIO_CLASS_BE<<IOPRIO_CLASS_SHIFT  please?

Btw, why did you switch to using syscall instead of sys_ioprio_set ?

For the //FIXME: make cmake test    part, I don't think you need a
cmake test.  Tthe following should suffice:

/* Check if this system has ionice */
#if !defined(SYS_ioprio_get) || !defined(SYS_ioprio_set)
/* All new kernels have SYS_ioprio_get and _set defined, but for the
few that do not, here are the definitions */
#if defined(__i386__)
#define __NR_ioprio_set         289
#define __NR_ioprio_get         290
#elif defined(__ppc__) || defined(__powerpc__)
#define __NR_ioprio_set         273
#define __NR_ioprio_get         274
#elif defined(__x86_64__)
#define __NR_ioprio_set         251
#define __NR_ioprio_get         252
#elif defined(__ia64__)
#define __NR_ioprio_set         1274
#define __NR_ioprio_get         1275
#ifdef __GNUC__
#warning "This architecture does not support IONICE.  Disabling ionice feature."
/* Map these to SYS_ioprio_get */
#define SYS_ioprio_get                __NR_ioprio_get
#define SYS_ioprio_set                __NR_ioprio_set

#endif /* !SYS_ioprio_get */

(This is what I use in
kdebase/workspace/libs/ksysguard/processcore/processes_linux_p.cpp )
