Yeah, I've renamed it to ext4_journalled_writepage. I've refrained from the
folding of __ext4_journalled_writepage() because that is not completely
trivial (due to goto labels, variable naming...) so it would require
separate patch and I'll just spare that for the cleanup of the whole
journalled writeout path.
