    But how much is that different from checking CHANGED bit on each IO?
    I mean, we can just do sth like cfqg->blkg->blkcg == bio_blkcg(bio).
    It isn't expensive.

    blkcg doesn't allow that anyway (it tries but is racy) and I actually
    was thinking about sending a RFC patch to kill CLONE_IO.
