    Looks good.

    There's a few things this misses, the worst of which were all my bugs in
    the original description. Things like "don't unlock the page after
    calling writepage, becasue writepage will do it on its own". Details
    like that.

    The worst problem actually ends up being the fact that the global sync()
    doesn't work, after all, because if it's associated with syncing the
    inodes it will only sync the dirty page list for inodes that are dirty.
    Now, this probably doesn't show up in testing, because mostly if you
    have dirty pages the inode too _will_ be dirty, but that only makes the
    bug more insidious.

    So I'll work on this a bit to polish up these problems, but on the whole
    this is all fine.
