> Curious....is this same behavior as vm_dirty_ratio ?

I think this is same behavior as vm_dirty_ratio.  When vm_dirty_ratio is
changed then dirty_ratio_handler() will set vm_dirty_bytes=0.  When
vm_dirty_bytes is written dirty_bytes_handler() will set
vm_dirty_ratio=0.  So I think that the per-memcg dirty memory parameters
mimic the behavior of vm_dirty_ratio, vm_dirty_bytes and the other
global dirty parameters.

Am I missing your question?
