Subject: [PATCH 2/3] vfs: Add a super block operation to check for writeback errors

Right now we check for errors on super block in syncfs().

ret2 = errseq_check_and_advance(&sb->s_wb_err, &f.file->f_sb_err);

overlayfs does not update sb->s_wb_err and it is tracked on upper filesystem.
So provide a superblock operation to check errors so that filesystem
can provide override generic method and provide its own method to
check for writeback errors.
