    ext4 doesn't specificly disable writeback from reclaim context, but
    in a rather convoluted way disabled basically all writeback through
    ->writepage. The only thing allowed is overwrites of already allocated
    blocks.

    In addition to that reiserfs also frefuses to write back pages
    from reclaim context if they require a transaction, which is the case
    if the file was written to through mmap.
