But overall patch set seems good (to me.) And dirty_ratio and dirty_background_ratio
will give us much benefit (of performance) than we lose by small overheads.

IIUC, this series affects trgger for background-write-out.

Could you show some score which dirty_ratio give us benefit in the cases of

- copying a file in a memcg which hits limit
ex) copying a 100M file in 120MB limit. etc..

- kernel make performance in limited memcg.
ex) making a kernel in 100MB limit (too large ?)
etc....(when an application does many write and hits memcg's limit.)

But, please get enough ack for changes in generic codes of dirty_ratio.

Thank you for your work.
