jffs2: get rid of jffs2_sync_super
Artem Bityutskiy [Mon, 7 May 2012 16:56:53 +0000 (19:56 +0300)]
Currently JFFS2 file-system maps the VFS "superblock" abstraction to the
write-buffer. Namely, it uses VFS services to synchronize the write-buffer
periodically.

The whole "superblock write-out" VFS infrastructure is served by the
'sync_supers()' kernel thread, which wakes up every 5 (by default) seconds and
writes out all dirty superblock using the '->write_super()' call-back. But the
problem with this thread is that it wastes power by waking up the system every
5 seconds no matter what. So we want to kill it completely and thus, we need to
make file-systems to stop using the '->write_super' VFS service, and then
remove it together with the kernel thread.

This patch switches the JFFS2 write-buffer management from
'->write_super()'/'->s_dirt' to a delayed work. Instead of setting the 's_dirt'
flag we just schedule a delayed work for synchronizing the write-buffer.
