Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.13 106/189] dm writecache: commit just one block, not a full page
Date
From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 991bd8d7bc78966b4dc427b53a144f276bffcd52 ]

Some architectures have pages larger than 4k and committing a full
page causes needless overhead.

Fix this by writing a single block when committing the superblock.
