Yeah, we could implicitly tie the per-memcg dirty limits to the global one.
For example, do 40% memcg dirty ratio when the global ratio is 20%.
At the same time, we'll need to improve the page reclaim code so that
it works well even when a LRU list has 40% dirty pages. I believe this
is an achievable goal when we put dirty pages to a standalone LRU list.
