Subject[PATCH] use list_add_tail in buffer_insert_list
This is a really old patch from the XFS tree.

We need to call list_add_tail in buffer_insert_list to preserve buffer
ordering. This essential for a good extent layout with XFS's delayed
allocation and a while ago the reiserfs group requested the same change.

ACKed by sct.
