Have you had a chance to look at this?  Here's something which hasn't
been compile-tested yet, but it didn't take me long...

jbd2: Add buffer triggers

From: Joel Becker <Joel.Becker@oracle.com>

Filesystems often to do compute intensive operation on some
metadata.  If this operation is repeated many times, it can be very
expensive.  It would be much nicer if the operation could be performed
once before a buffer goes to disk.

This adds triggers to jbd2 buffer heads.  Just before writing a metadata
buffer to the journal, jbd2 will optionally call a commit trigger associated
with the buffer.  If the journal is aborted, an abort trigger will be
called on any dirty buffers as they are dropped from pending
transactions.

ocfs2 will use this feature.

Initially I tried to come up with a more generic trigger that could be
used for non-buffer-related events like transaction completion.  It
doesn't tie nicely, because the information a buffer trigger needs
(specific to a journal_head) isn't the same as what a transaction
trigger needs (specific to a tranaction_t or perhaps journal_t).  So I
implemented a buffer set, with the understanding that
journal/transaction wide triggers should be implemented separately.

There is only one trigger set allowed per buffer.  I can't think of any
reason to attach more than one set.  Contrast this with a journal or
transaction in which multiple places may want to watch the entire
transaction separately.

The trigger sets are considered static allocation from the jbd2
perspective.  ocfs2 will just have one trigger set per block type,
setting the same set on every bh of the same type.
