I didn't notice these problems since I my userspace doesn't enable the
writeback cgroup.  (In fact I don't know how to do it using Debian
Jessie.)

Tejun, can you please take a look at this and give me a

the problem, but past that point I'd like to have a fix or revert this
commit before Linus releases the next -rc release.
