[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 13/32] GFS2: Make writeback more responsive to system conditions



This patch adds writeback_control to writing back the AIL
list. This means that we can then take advantage of the
information we get in ->write_inode() in order to set off
some pre-emptive writeback.

In addition, the AIL code is cleaned up a bit to make it
a bit simpler to understand.

There is still more which can usefully be done in this area,
but this is a good start at least.
