Subject: [PATCH v4 01/13] ext4: Handle redirtying in ext4_bio_write_page()

Since we want to transition transaction commits to use ext4_writepages()
for writing back ordered, add handling of page redirtying into
ext4_bio_write_page(). Also move buffer dirty bit clearing into the same
place other buffer state handling.
