Consider also that get_cgroup_from_bio() is much more slow than
task_cgroup() and need to lock/unlock_page_cgroup() in
get_blkio_cgroup_id(), while task_cgroup() is rcu protected.

BTW another optimization could be to use the blkio-cgroup functionality
only for dirty pages and cut out some blkio_set_owner(). For all the
other cases IO always occurs in the same context of the current task,
and you can use task_cgroup().

However, this is true only for page cache pages, for IO generated by
anonymous pages (swap) you still need the page tracking functionality
both for reads and writes.
