Currently weight is just used to calculate the time slice of different
cfq group, right? So why can't it be used to indicate other weight? So
say, if we are just want to use iops to indicate the difference between
different cgroups(100 weight vs 200 weight), so one process will send
100 ios while the other will send 200 ios just for example. We will need
a new iops_weight in your option to be exported?
