Subject: [PATCH 09/13] fs: drop redundant checks from __writeback_single_inode()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@...gle.com>

I_DIRTY_TIME and I_DIRTY_INODE are mutually exclusive in i_state.  So
after seeing that I_DIRTY_TIME is set, there's no point in checking for
I_DIRTY_INODE, as it must be clear.

Separately, wbc->for_sync implies wbc->sync_mode == WB_SYNC_ALL.
So there's no need to check for both.  Just check for WB_SYNC_ALL.
