    mmmh.. maybe it's a bit more complex (would add some overhead?) to
    translate the limit from dirty_ratio into pages or bytes, because we
    need to evaluate it in function of the per-cgroup dirtyable memory (lru
    pages and free pages I suppose). Maybe it's enough to implement it
    directly in determine_dirtyable_memory().

    I can try to implement it and post a new patch.
