Subject: [PATCH v5 2/9] iomap/gfs2: Unlock and put folio in page_done handler

When an iomap defines a ->page_done() handler in its page_ops, delegate
unlocking the folio and putting the folio reference to that handler.

This allows to fix a race between journaled data writes and folio
writeback in gfs2: before this change, gfs2_iomap_page_done() was called
after unlocking the folio, so writeback could start writing back the
folio's buffers before they could be marked for writing to the journal.
Also, try_to_free_buffers() could free the buffers before
gfs2_iomap_page_done() was done adding the buffers to the current
current transaction.  With this change, gfs2_iomap_page_done() adds the
buffers to the current transaction while the folio is still locked, so
the problems described above can no longer occur.

The only current user of ->page_done() is gfs2, so other filesystems are
not affected.  To catch out any out-of-tree users, switch from a page to
a folio in ->page_done().
