Now that we have metadata counters in the VM, we need to provide a way to kick
writeback on dirty metadata.  Introduce super_operations->write_metadata.  This
allows file systems to deal with writing back any dirty metadata we need based
on the writeback needs of the system.  Since there is no inode to key off of we
need a list in the bdi for dirty super blocks to be added.  From there we can
find any dirty sb's on the bdi we are currently doing writeback on and call into
their ->write_metadata callback.

Otherwise the patch looks good to me. So feel free to add:

after fixing the above.

Yup I hit this as soon as I started testing so I'll go ahead and add your reviewed-by. I'll resend the whole series after these changes have actually gone through some testing since it seems you are happy with the overall direction. Thanks,
