Subject: [PATCH 13/17] block: don't plug in blkdev_write_iter

Remove the no needed plug in blkdev_write_iter.  For direct I/O that
issues more than a single I/O, the plug is already done in
__blkdev_direct_IO, and for synchronous buffered writes, the plug
is done in writeback_inodes_wb / wb_writeback, while for the other
cases a plug doesn't make sense.
