buffer: switch do_emergency_thaw() away from pdflush_operation()
Jens Axboe [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 11:44:08 +0000 (13:44 +0200)]
This is (again) a preparatory patch similar to commit
a2a9537ac0b37a5da6fbe7e1e9cb06c524d2a9c4. It open codes a simple
async way of executing do_thaw_all() out of context, so we can get
rid of pdflush.
