Subject: [RFC 08/11] fs: add get_block() to struct inode_operations

To be able to flush dirty pages to media as part of the fsync/msync path
DAX needs to be able to map file offsets to kernel addresses via a
combination of the filesystem's get_block() routine and
bdev_direct_access().  This currently happens in the DAX fault handlers
which receive a get_block() callback directly from the filesystem via a
function parameter.

For the fsync/msync path this doesn't work, though, because DAX is called
not by the filesystem but by the writeback infrastructure which doesn't
know about the filesystem specific get_block() routine.

To handle this we make get_block() an entry in the struct inode_operations
table so that we can access the correct get_block() routine in the
context of the writeback infrastructure.
