Subject: [PATCH v2 9/11] ext4: Switch to using write_cache_pages() for data=journal writeout

Instead of using generic_writepages(), let's use write_cache_pages() for
writeout of journalled data. It will allow us to stop providing
.writepage callback. Our data=journal writeback path would benefit from
a larger cleanup and refactoring but that's for a separate cleanup
series.
