cleanup is a specific kind of compaction, and as such respects the
compaction throughput throttle.

The compaction throughput throttle is designed to prevent compaction
from negatively impacting the performance of things-not-compaction. If
you notice that cleanup compaction on all or most nodes consumes too
much i/o, reduce the throttle value.
