Merge tag 'writeback' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wfg/linux
Pull writeback tree from Wu Fengguang: "Mainly from Jan Kara to avoid iput() in the flusher threads." * tag 'writeback' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wfg/linux: writeback: Avoid iput() from flusher thread vfs: Rename end_writeback() to clear_inode() vfs: Move waiting for inode writeback from end_writeback() to evict_inode() writeback: Refactor writeback_single_inode() writeback: Remove wb->list_lock from writeback_single_inode() writeback: Separate inode requeueing after writeback writeback: Move I_DIRTY_PAGES handling writeback: Move requeueing when I_SYNC set to writeback_sb_inodes() writeback: Move clearing of I_SYNC into inode_sync_complete() writeback: initialize global_dirty_limit fs: remove 8 bytes of padding from struct writeback_control on 64 bit builds mm: page-writeback.c: local functions should not be exposed globally
