Ok, I don't understand this so I better ask. Can you explain a bit how memory
cgroup dirty ratio is going to play with per BDI dirty proportion thing.

Currently we seem to be calculating per BDI proportion (based on recently
completed events), of system wide dirty ratio and decide whether a process
should be throttled or not.

Because throttling decision is also based on BDI and its proportion, how
are we going to fit it with mem cgroup? Is it going to be BDI proportion
of dirty memory with-in memory cgroup (and not system wide)?

Thanks
Vivek
