[PATCH V8 7/8] ext4: add cleancache support

This seventh patch of eight in this cleancache series "opts-in"
cleancache for ext4.  Filesystems must explicitly enable cleancache
by calling cleancache_init_fs anytime an instance of the filesystem
is mounted. For ext4, all other cleancache hooks are in
the VFS layer including the matching cleancache_flush_fs
hook which must be called on unmount.

Details and a FAQ can be found in Documentation/vm/cleancache.txt

[v6-v8: no changes]
[v5: jeremy@goop.org: simplify init hook and any future fs init changes]
