Subject[PATCH 10/11] writeback: splice dirty inode entries to default bdi on bdi_destroy()
Date
We cannot safely ensure that the inodes are all gone at this point
in time, and we must not destroy this bdi with inodes having off it.
So just splice our entries to the default bdi since that one will
always persist.
