Subject: [RFC PATCH 30/76] vfs,
 fscache: Force ->write_inode() to occur if cookie pinned for writeback

Use an inode flag, I_PINNING_FSCACHE_WB, to indicate that a cookie is
pinned in use by that inode for the purposes of writeback.

Pinning is necessary because the in-use pin from the open file is released
before the writeback takes place, but if the resources aren't pinned, the
dirty data can't be written to the cache.
