dm-ioband isn't upstream.  Best to ping original authors from valinux if
you're still interested in it.

If you have a need for bandwidth control Vivek Goyal has developed
throttling support in the block layer.  Vivek's work has been merged for
upstream inclusion in Linux 2.6.37.

See the following for documentation on throttling support:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/axboe/linux-2.6-block.git;a=commit;h=2786c4e5e54802c3

If you'd like to try it, it is available with the following:

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/axboe/linux-2.6-block.git
cd linux-2.6-block
git checkout -b my_for-next origin/for-next
