IMHO the iops and ratelimiting should tune itself and no extra knobs
should be necessary because this depends on the underlying devices and
current load. The user set parameters can be wrong the moment it's done.

Before we find the right way to tune it, the sysfs knobs are there to
make it easy for someobody familiar with the internals of the async
discard working to experiment.

If we'd still want something for regular users, I'd suggest to add some
sort of high-level strategies, like
bursty/batched/conservative/slow/idk. But this would anyway build on
existing default behaviour.
