So, before, only the async compression workers would run through the
wbc accounting code regardless of who originated the dirty pages,
which is obviously wrong. After the patch, the code accounts when the
dirty pages are being handed off to the compression workers and
no_wbc_acct is used to suppress spurious accounting from the workers.
