2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit af6f029d3836eb7264cd3fbb13a6baf0e5fdb5ea upstream.

This enables us to drop the range_cont writeback mode
use from ext4_da_writepages.
