IMHO, dirty page handling and I/O throttling is a different problem.

- A task (or cgroup) which makes the page dirty
- A task (or cgroup) to which a page is accounted

Is different from each other, in general.

I have a plan to add dirty_ratio to memcg, but it's for avoiding massive stavation in
memory reclaim, not for I/O control.

If you want to implement I/O throttle in MM layer, plz don't depend on memcg.
The perpose is different.
