Subject[019/111] bio, fs: update RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE to match the corresponding BIO_RW_* bits
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit aca27ba9618276dd2f777bcd5a1419589ccf1ca8 upstream.

Commit a82afdf (block: use the same failfast bits for bio and request)
moved BIO_RW_* bits around such that they match up with REQ_* bits.
Unfortunately, fs.h hard coded RW_MASK, RWA_MASK, READ, WRITE, READA
and SWRITE as 0, 1, 2 and 3, and expected them to match with BIO_RW_*
bits. READ/WRITE didn't change but BIO_RW_AHEAD was moved to bit 4
instead of bit 1, breaking RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE.

This patch updates RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE such that they match the
BIO_RW_* bits again. A follow up patch will update the definitions to
directly use BIO_RW_* bits so that this kind of breakage won't happen
again.

Neil also spotted missing RWA_MASK conversion.

Stable: The offending commit a82afdf was released with v2.6.32, so
this patch should be applied to all kernels since then but it must
_NOT_ be applied to kernels earlier than that.
