Hmm, I'm not sure I can agree with this. If BDI_WRITTEN is used for bandwidth
estimation, then I think it's more correct not to count rewrites and truncated
pages.

But I don't see this matter either way since this is just used as a heuristic
and the occasional extra or lack of count shouldn't make a significant
difference.

Thanks,
Miklos
