Subject[patch 33/40] mm: write_cache_pages optimise page cleaning
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>

commit 515f4a037fb9ab736f8bad733fcd2ffd350cf265 upstream.

In write_cache_pages, if we get stuck behind another process that is
cleaning pages, we will be forced to wait for them to finish, then perform
our own writeout (if it was redirtied during the long wait), then wait for
that.

If a page under writeout is still clean, we can skip waiting for it (if
we're part of a data integrity sync, we'll be waiting for all writeout
pages afterwards, so we'll still be waiting for the other guy's write
that's cleaned the page).
