I'm not buying that argument. IO-boost isn't related to b/w management.

IO-boot is more about compensating for hidden dependencies, and those
don't get less hidden for using a different scheduling class.

Now, arguably DL should not be doing IO in the first place, but that's a
whole different discussion.

Hurmph... so I'm not sold on this bit.
