I'm completely ignorant of how btrfs compressed writeback works so don't
quite understand implications of this. So does this mean that writeback to
btrfs compressed files won't be able to transition inodes from one memcg to
another? Or are you trying to say the 'wbc' used from async worker thread
is actually a dummy one and we would double-account the writeback?

Anyway, AFAICS no_wbc_acct means: "IO done as a result of this wbc will not
have influence on inode memcg ownership", doesn't it?
