I went through the code and couldn't find where blk-throttle is
discriminating async IOs. Were you saying that blk-throttle currently
doesn't throttle because those IOs aren't associated with the dirtying
task? If so, note that it's different from cfq which explicitly
assigns all async IOs when choosing cfqq even if we fix tagging.

Thanks.
