It isn't and can't be. There's nothing generic about it across
different policies and it's not even clear what that means. If the
user chooses combine, iops limit with cfq weights, what the hell is
"generic" about that weight?

So, if you want to implement a new blkcg policy, add the config
parameters and export the stats the policy wants *yourself*. Not
having clear separation between policies and generic stuff was what
led us to this yucky mess and there's no way we're going back there.
So, NO.
