Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Remove some 'congested' tests

The framework for reporting congestion for "bdi"s is no longer widely
used.  bdis for block devices don't report congestion at all.
bdis for nfs, ceph, and fuse do, but any code which depends on that
is not going to work for most filesystems.

So we should remove it.

These two patches remove {inode,bdi,wb}_congested() and related
functions, and change all call site to assume the result was "false",
which it (almost) always is.
