Subject[07/11] ext4: Use tag dirty lookup during mpage_da_submit_io
From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Subject: ext4: Use tag dirty lookup during mpage_da_submit_io

commit af6f029d3836eb7264cd3fbb13a6baf0e5fdb5ea upstream.

This enables us to drop the range_cont writeback mode
use from ext4_da_writepages.
