[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 6/8] bio-cgroup: The body of bio-cgroup



Hi,

As you pointed out, cgroup iocontext stuff isn't well designed yet
since the current implementation of dm-iband doesn't need it.
I'd like to leave the iocontext stuff to you I/O scheduler guys
if you want to implement the bio-cgroup infrastructure to handle iocotexts
as the I/O schedulers expect.

I think iocontext allocated for a certain cgroup should be owned by the
cgroup itself, whose code isn't implemented yet. I think you need to
enhance it a bit if the owner is a cgroup.
