mm: bdi: allow setting a maximum for the bdi dirty limit
Add "max_ratio" to /sys/class/bdi. This indicates the maximum percentage of the global dirty threshold allocated to this bdi. [mszeredi@suse.cz] - fix parsing in max_ratio_store(). - export bdi_set_max_ratio() to modules - limit bdi_dirty with bdi->max_ratio - document new sysfs attribute Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
