Subject: writeback throttling deadlock

I report this deadlock in writeback throttling.

The deadlock happened in guest virtual machine with Debian kernel 4.17.17 
(4.17.0-3-amd64). The virtual machine had most of its memory swapped out, 
when I tried to shut it down, I got this deadlock. There was no io in 
flight.
