Hm, maybe I was not clear then. Let me try to rephrase.

As far as I understand, and as far as I saw during my tests, the blkio
controller only works for sync I/O requests (eg dd with oflag=direct).
Buffered I/O is not part of the control.

And since a VM's I/O is most likely buffered in some fashion, this does
not have any effect. That's what my tests showed.

Did your tests show something different? Maybe I did things wrong then.
