SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] bdi: Use parent filesystem BDI for inodes not capable of writeback

It shouldn't. Block device nodes are on the bdev filesystems, and
we twist the file->mapping pointer so that all the low-level read/write
code always deals with the bdev fs inode, and not the device node
filesystem.
