It can't be reverted directly (you'll get a build failure) since the
next ext4 patch in this -stable series depends on it.

There's a commit from Ted Ts'o in the ext4 git, "ext4: Use our own
write_cache_pages()", which removes the dependency, but that patch is
not yet in mainline so isn't a -stable candidate. When/if that patch
hits mainline, it can be added to -stable and this patch dropped/reverted.
