One more thought: You don't want the "_create" part here, do you? If
there's any point in writing back using this wb, it must be attached to
some inode and thus it must exist. In the normal case wb_get_create() will
just fetch the reference and be done with it but when you feed garbage into
this function due to id going stale or frn structures getting corrupted due
to concurrent access, you can be creating bogus wb structures in bdi...
