Subject[PATCH 00/12] IO-less dirty throttling v7
Andrew,

This revision undergoes a number of simplifications, cleanups and fixes.
Independent patches are separated out. The core patches (07, 08) now have
easier to understand changelog. Detailed rationals can be found in patch 08.

In response to the complexity complaints, an introduction document is
written explaining the rationals, algorithm and visual case studies:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/wfg/writeback/slides/smooth-dirty-throttling.pdf

The full patchset is accessible in

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wfg/writeback.git dirty-throttling-v7

Questions, reviews and independent tests will be highly appreciated.
