    Once that stuff is done, we'll be able to get rid of those just fine..

    FWIW, I'm tempted to add affs_dirty_sb()/affs_clean_sb()/affs_is_clean() and
    corresponding helpers for other filesystems in the series and fold conversions
    to those into your 1--6; you'll need insertion points for your "schedule
    some work" logics whether it's done on per-fs-type basis or globally...
