I think that the read and write should be consistent. Can you just use
white-space separation for both, rather than colon-separation for
writes and white-space separation for reads?

Also, storing device inode paths statically as strings into the
io_policy structure seems wrong, since it's quite possible for the
device node that was used originally to be gone by the time that
someone reads the io.policy file, or renamed, or even replaced with an
inode that refers to to a different block device

My preferred alternatives would be:

- read/write the value as a device number rather than a name
- read/write the block device's actual name (e.g. hda or sda) rather
than a path to the inode
