logfs: Propagate page parameter to __logfs_write_inode

During GC LogFS has to rewrite each valid block to a separate segment.
Rewrite operation reads data from an old segment and writes it to a
newly allocated segment. Since every write operation changes data
block pointers maintained in inode, inode should also be rewritten.

In GC path to avoid AB-BA deadlock LogFS marks a page with
PG_pre_locked in addition to locking the page (PG_locked). The page
lock is ignored iff the page is pre-locked.

LogFS uses a special file called segment file. The segment file
maintains an 8 bytes entry for every segment. It keeps track of erase
count, level etc. for every segment.

Bad things happen with a segment belonging to the segment file is GCed

---[ end trace 96e67d5b3aa3d6ca ]---

The patch passes locked page to __logfs_write_inode. It calls function
logfs_get_wblocks() to pre-lock the page. This ensures any further
attempts to lock the page are ignored (esp from get_erase_count).
