Awkward question for a v7, but here goes anyway: why is IOThrottle
worth its very own .json file?
I feel this is a common throttle structure that is used by block
devices as well as fsdev, so moved to a separate file.
I'm not sure that's a good idea.  Kevin, Berto, what do you think?

Mmm... I don't have a very strong opinion, but if there's no actual need
to move it to a separate file I'd prefer to leave it where it is.
The segregation is the solid reason. Because throttling is a feature
that is used by fsdev, block may many more in future. I do not see
moving it back to block does it make any sense?

It's not "moving it back", it's keeping it where it is. But I see no big
problem with moving it to a common file either.

I'd rather not put every struct shared across subsystem boundaries in
its own file.

We can keep it right where it is for now.  Bonus: more readable diff.
If we start sharing more throttle-related material than just a struct,
we can reconsider.

We could also move it to the existing file for common stuff:
qapi/common.json.  Not a great fit, though.
So, the final conclusion is to move to common.json?
