It just limits how far high and low the IO issue rate, measured in
cost, can go. ie. if max is at 200%, the controller won't issue more
than twice of what the cost model says 100% is.

They aren't. Can you please include the content of io.cost.qos and
io.cost.model before each run? Note that partial writes to subset of
parameters don't clear other parameters.
