Thanks. We do also need something similar in writeback_single_inode,
but I'm not sure how to do that in a good way, and how fixing this now
would interact with Jens' writeback changes. Probably makes sense to
postpone it until 2.6.32 at least and possibly try to split data
and metadata writeback fully.
