From: Saugata Das <saugata.das@linaro.org>

Today, storage devices like eMMC has special features like data tagging
(introduced in MMC-4.5 version) in order to improve performance of some
specific writes. On MMC stack, data tagging is used for all writes which has
REQ_META flag set. On EXT4, however, currently REQ_META is set only for read.
This patch adds the capability mark a meta-data buffer with set_buffer_meta
during meta data write. During submit_bh, this information is used to set
REQ_META flag.
