Hi Paul, Vivek

Here is a patch to fix the issue Paul raised.

This patch achives the following goals
1 According to Paul's comment, Modifing io.policy interface to
use device number for read/write directly.
2 Just use white-space separation for both, rather than colon-
separation for writes and white-space separation for reads.
3 Do more strict checking for inputting.

old interface:
Configure weight=300 ioprio_class=2 on /dev/hdb in this cgroup
# echo "/dev/hdb:300:2" > io.policy
# cat io.policy
dev weight class
/dev/hdb 300 2

new interface:
Configure weight=300 ioprio_class=2 on /dev/hdb in this cgroup
# echo "3:64 300 2" > io.policy
# cat io.policy
dev weight class
3:64 300 2
