Subject[PATCH v2.1 01/17] VFS: introduce helpers for manipulation s_dirty flag
Date
From: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>

This patch introduces 3 new VFS helpers: 'mark_sb_dirty()',
'mark_sb_clean()', and 'is_sb_dirty()'. The helpers simply
set 'sb->s_dirt' or test 'sb->s_dirt'. The plan is to make
every FS use these helpers instead of manipulating
'sb->s_dirt' directly. And the further plan is to stop the
periodic write-back when there is no dirt.

This patch is just a preparation. No functional changes yet.
