Subject[176/200] NFS: Fix another nfs_wb_page() deadlock
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit 0522f6adedd2736cbca3c0e16ca51df668993eee upstream.

J.R. Okajima reports that the call to sync_inode() in nfs_wb_page() can
deadlock with other writeback flush calls. It boils down to the fact
that we cannot ever call writeback_single_inode() while holding a page
lock (even if we do set nr_to_write to zero) since another process may
already be waiting in the call to do_writepages(), and so will deny us
the I_SYNC lock.
