Sorry for the confusion. 2.6.32 is safe. I tested NFS, fuse and cifs.
NFS writes will be throttled at the dirty limit, and fuse/cifs see
near zero nr_writeback/nr_dirty numbers during heavy write.

NFS and fuse does set the bdi congestion state and somehow expects it to
backoff background flushing. This IO priority thing could be fixed for
next merged window.
