bio-cgroup is renamed to bklio-cgroup. :)
I don't clearly understand about range-bw but I think that you don't
need to consider to support them and it should be taken care of by
blkio-cgroup and the common part of dm-ioband, not the policy
implementation. Do you have any problems with AIO or delayed write?
