Btrfs: fix loop device on top of btrfs
We cannot use the loop device which has been connected to a file in the btrf The reproduce steps is following: # dd if=/dev/zero of=vdev0 bs=1M count=1024 # losetup /dev/loop0 vdev0 # mkfs.btrfs /dev/loop0 ... failed to zero device start -5 The reason is that the btrfs don't implement either ->write_begin or ->write the VFS API, so we fix it by setting ->write to do_sync_write().
