Subject[patch 41/46] mm: write_cache_pages more terminate quickly
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>

commit 82fd1a9a8ced9607312b54859572bcc6211e8919 upstream.

Now that we have the early-termination logic in place, it makes sense to
bail out early in all other cases where done is set to 1.
