Ingo, I haven't forgotten about this, I just been heavily bug wacking
lately and just haven't had the time to do this.

I've pulled out both the lock_bh_state and lock_bh_journal_head and made
them two global locks. I haven't noticed any slowing down here, but
then again I haven't ran any real benchmarks. There's a BH flag set to
know when the lock is pending on a specific buffer head.

I don't know how acceptable this patch is. Take a look and if you have
any better ideas then let me know. I prefer this patch over the
wait_on_bit patch I sent you earlier since this patch still accounts for
priority inheritance, as the wait_on_bits don't.
