I've got a new and tested patch to support cgroup writeback on xfs that
I'll send out today.  But even with that lots of file systems don't
support cgroup writeback and there is no easy way to autodetect the
support.  As far as I an tell ext2 and f2fs also support cgroup
writeback, so they should be added a well.

As for the higher level question?  The shared tests always confused the
heck out of me.  generic with the right feature checks seem like a much
better idea.
