Subject: [PATCH 1/2] Remove inode_congested()

inode_congested() reports if the backing-device for the inode is
congested.  Few bdi report congestion any more, only ceph, fuse, and
nfs.  Have support just for them is unlikely to be useful.

The places which test inode_congested() or it variants like
inode_write_congested(), avoid initiation IO if congestion is present.
We now have to rely on other places in the stack to back off, or abort
requests - we already do for everything except these 3 filesystems.

So remove inode_congested() and related functions, and remove the call
sites, assuming that inode_congested() always returns 'false'.
