block_page_mkwrite is only called by ext4 and nilfs2 anyway, so
converting both callers over should not be a problem, as long as
it actually is done properly.

Which is my main beef with this mess of a conversation - it should
have been posted as a single series that actually does a mostly
scriped conversion after fixing up the initial harder issues, and
be properly tested. It has been pretty much an example of how not
do things, and been dragging on forever while wasting everyones time.
