Subject[PATCH 1/2] fs: ext4: use BUG_ON if writepage call comes from direct reclaim
Date
direct reclaim doesn't write out filesystem page, only kswapd could do
it. So, if the call comes from direct reclaim, it is definitely a bug.

And, Mel Gormane also mentioned "Ultimately, this will be a BUG_ON." In
commit 94054fa3fca1fd78db02cb3d68d5627120f0a1d4 ("xfs: warn if direct
reclaim tries to writeback pages").

Although it is for xfs, ext4 has the similar behavior, so elevate
WARN_ON to BUG_ON.

And, correct the comment accordingly.
