Subject[patch 2/5] mm: writeback: cleanups in preparation for per-zone dirty limits
Date
The next patch will introduce per-zone dirty limiting functions in
addition to the traditional global dirty limiting.

Rename determine_dirtyable_memory() to global_dirtyable_memory()
before adding the zone-specific version, and fix up its documentation.

Also, move the functions to determine the dirtyable memory and the
function to calculate the dirty limit based on that together so that
their relationship is more apparent and that they can be commented on
as a group.
