Subject[PATCH 05/11] nfs: remove reliance on bdi congestion
From
Date
The bdi congestion tracking in not widely used and will be removed.

NFS is one of a small number of filesystems that uses it, setting just
the async (write) congestion flag at what it determines are appropriate
times.

The only remaining effect of the async flag is to cause (some)
WB_SYNC_NONE writes to be skipped.

So instead of setting the flag, set an internal flag and change:
- .writepages to do nothing if WB_SYNC_NONE and the flag is set
- .writepage to return AOP_WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATE if WB_SYNC_NONE
and the flag is set.

The writepages change causes a behavioural change in that pageout() can
now return PAGE_ACTIVATE instead of PAGE_KEEP, so SetPageActive() will
be called on the page which (I think) wil further delay the next attempt
at writeout. This might be a good thing.
