    Subject[PATCH 0/6] writeback cleanups and trivial fixes

    Here are some writeback cleanups to avoid unnecessary calculation overheads,
    and relative simple bug fixes.

    The patch applies to latest linux-next tree. The mmotm tree will need rebase
    to include commit 32422c79 (writeback: Add tracing to balance_dirty_pages)
    in order to avoid merge conflicts.

    [PATCH 1/6] writeback: take account of NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP in balance_dirty_pages()
    [PATCH 2/6] writeback: reduce calls to global_page_state in balance_dirty_pages()
    [PATCH 3/6] writeback: avoid unnecessary calculation of bdi dirty thresholds

    [PATCH 4/6] writeback: dont redirty tail an inode with dirty pages
    [PATCH 5/6] writeback: fix queue_io() ordering
    [PATCH 6/6] writeback: merge for_kupdate and !for_kupdate cases
