This is necessary to handle e.g. btrfs/124 case.

When we mount degraded RAID1 FS and write to it, and then
re-mount with full device, the write pointers of corresponding
zones of written BG differ. The patch 07 mark such block group
as "wp_broken" and make it read only. In this situation, we only
have read only RAID1 BGs because of "wp_broken" and un-mirrored BGs
are also marked read only, because we have RAID1 BGs.
As a result, all the BGs are now read only, so that we
cannot even start the rebalance to fix the situation.
