I agree to the latter part.

The difficulty is that our primary use case here is preventing IO
starvation while cluster raid is resyncing; and we don't know the IO
load on other nodes, or what other LVs might inflict on the same backend
store / PV. Hence, a static limit probably is the easiest way to

I agree that a more dynamic approach would be desirable, but that
appears to be very complex to get right.
