Subject[PATCH v1 6/9] ext4: introduce __ext4_mark_super_dirty
Date
From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com>

Introduce another superblock dirtying helper: '__ext4_mark_super_dirty()' which
marks the superblock as dirty unconditionally, without checking whether we have
the superblock or not. Use this function from '__ext4_handle_dirty_super()'.

This patch is a preparation for further work. We need to have a single place
where we mark the superblock as dirty, and this place is now the
'__ext4_mark_super_dirty()' function. We intentionally make it to be non-inline
because one of the next patches will add more code there.

Note: the final goal is to get rid of the 'sync_supers()' kernel thread which
wakes up every 5 seconds and even if there is nothing to do. Thus, we are
pushing superblock management from VFS down to file-systems.
