Subject: [PATCH 1/4] bdi: Allow block devices to say that they require stable
 page writes

This creates a per-backing-device flag that tracks whether or not pages must be
held immutable during writeout.  Eventually it will be used to waive
wait_for_page_writeback() if nobody requires stable pages.
