Subject[PATCH] mm: add strictlimit knob
From
Date
"strictlimit" feature was introduced to enforce per-bdi dirty limits for
FUSE which sets bdi max_ratio to 1% by default:

http://www.http.com//article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/105809

However the feature can be useful for other relatively slow or untrusted
BDIs like USB flash drives and DVD+RW. The patch adds a knob to enable the
feature:

echo 1 > /sys/class/bdi/X:Y/strictlimit

Being enabled, the feature enforces bdi max_ratio limit even if global (10%)
dirty limit is not reached. Of course, the effect is not visible until
max_ratio is decreased to some reasonable value.
