Subject[PATCH v3 1/9] blk-throttle: correct stale comment in throtl_pd_init
From: Kemeng Shi <>

On the default hierarchy (cgroup2), the throttle interface files don't
exist in the root cgroup, so the ablity to limit the whole system
by configuring root group is not existing anymore. In general, cgroup
doesn't wanna be in the business of restricting resources at the
system level, so correct the stale comment that we can limit whole
system to we can only limit subtree.
