Fair enough, but again please note that:

- throttle-group.c is not meant to be generic, but it's tied to
  BlockDriverState / BlockBackend.
- it is currently being rewritten:

If you can explain your use case with a bit more detail we can try to
see what can be done about it.

We want to use  virtio-9p for block io instead of virtio-blk-pci. But in case of
virtio-9p we can just use fsdev devices, so we want to apply throttling (QoS)
on these devices and as of now the io throttling only possible with the -drive option.

As a work around we are doing the throttling using cgroup. It has its own costs.
So, we want to have throttling for fsdev devices inside the qemu itself. I am just
trying to understand and estimate time required for implementing it for the fsdevices.
