Miao Xie - Jan. 10, 2013, 5:47 a.m.
writeback_inodes_sb(_nr)_if_idle() is re-implemented by replacing down_read()
with down_read_trylock() because
- If ->s_umount is write locked, then the sb is not idle. That is
  writeback_inodes_sb(_nr)_if_idle() needn't wait for the lock.
- writeback_inodes_sb(_nr)_if_idle() grabs s_umount lock when it want to start
  writeback, it may bring us deadlock problem when doing umount. In order to
  fix the problem, ext4 and btrfs implemented their own writeback functions
  instead of writeback_inodes_sb(_nr)_if_idle(), but it introduced the redundant
  code, it is better to implement a new writeback_inodes_sb(_nr)_if_idle().

The name of these two functions is cumbersome, so rename them to
try_to_writeback_inodes_sb(_nr).

This idea came from Christoph Hellwig.
Some code is from the patch of Kamal Mostafa.

  The patch looks good. Thanks! You can add:
Reviewed-by: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

  BTW, since changes to filesystems are minimal, maybe Fengguang can take
the patch through his writeback tree? Fengguang?
