What happens to per device rules (per device weight and per device
throttling rules)? IIUC, in new scheme of things, upon elevator switch
these rules will be gone.

I can understand per device weight rules disappearing but what about
throttling rules. They are independent of IO scheduler and change of
io scheduler should not cause per device throttling rules to get lost.

This just gets worse if elevator switch fails and we fall back to old
elevator. But now we have lost of the rules as rules were part of
blkg.conf and old groups are gone.
