I guess it's okay but am still not a big fan of adding another hook. This is
primarily because blk-throtl is sitting too early in the stack - e.g. rq_qos
is doing the same thing but sits after the split path - and it's a bit nasty
to add an additional hook for it.

Do you think it can be an option to relocate the blk-throtl hooks to the
same spots as rq-qos or, even better, make it use rq-qos?
