      Description

      As stated in https://jira.percona.com/browse/PXB-1631 with --throttle option we should be limiting the disk transfer to number of specified 10MB units per second.

      However, effectively the limit is N+1 of units per second due to the code issue:

      void
      xtrabackup_io_throttling(void)
      {
      	if (xtrabackup_throttle && (io_ticket--) < 0) {
      		os_event_reset(wait_throttle);
      		os_event_wait(wait_throttle);
      	}
      }
      

      I can confirm in my tests that using --throttle=1 option results in disk reads of ~20MB/s, --throttle=2 gives ~30MB/s, etc.

        Smart Checklist
