If you'd like to keep dm-ioband modular then I'd say the appropriate
cgroup interfaces need to be exposed for module use (symbols exported,
etc).  No other controller has had a need to be modular but if you think
it is requirement for dm-ioband (facilitate updates, etc) then I have to
believe it is doable.
