Throttling read + direct IO, higher up has few issues too. Users will
not like that a task got blocked as it tried to submit a read from a
throttled group. Current async behavior works well where we queue up the
bio from the task in throttled group and let task do other things. Same
is true for AIO where we would not like to block in bio submission.
