    it can be. why not?

    i'm not sure if i understand these points. can you explain a bit?

    my patch penalizes heavy-writer cgroups as task_dirty_limit does
    for heavy-writer tasks. i don't think that it's necessary to be
    tied to the memory subsystem because i merely want to group writers.

    otoh, if you want to limit the number (or percentage or whatever) of
    dirty pages in a memory cgroup, it can't be done independently from
    the memory subsystem, of course. it's another story, tho.
