Subject[PATCH 2/5] mm: account_page_writeback added
Date
This allows code outside of the mm core to safely manipulate page
writeback state and not worry about the other accounting. Not using
these routines means that some code will lose track of the accounting
and we get bugs.

Modified nilfs2 to use interface.
