Subject: [PATCH V4 5/5] ext4: flush background discard kwork when retry allocation

From: Wang Jianchao <wangjianchao@...ishou.com>

The background discard kwork tries to mark blocks used and issue
discard. This can make filesystem suffer from NOSPC error, xfstest
generic/371 can fail due to it. Fix it by flushing discard kwork
in ext4_should_retry_alloc. At the same time, give up discard at
the moment.
