Subject: [RFC PATCH 3/9] writeback: tracing: pass global_wb_domain as tracepoint parameter

The symbol global_wb_domain is not GPL-exported to modules. In order
to allow kernel tracers implemented as GPL modules to access the
global writeback domain dirty limit, as used within the
global_dirty_state and balance_dirty_pages trace events, pass
a pointer to the global writeback domain as a new parameter for
those tracepoints.
