writeback: synchronize sync(2) against cgroup writeback membership switches
sync_inodes_sb() can race against cgwb (cgroup writeback) membership switches and fail to writeback some inodes. For example, if an inode switches to another wb while sync_inodes_sb() is in progress, the new wb might not be visible to bdi_split_work_to_wbs() at all or the inode might jump from a wb which hasn't issued writebacks yet to one which already has. This patch adds backing_dev_info->wb_switch_rwsem to synchronize cgwb switch path against sync_inodes_sb() so that sync_inodes_sb() is guaranteed to see all the target wbs and inodes can't jump wbs to escape syncing. v2: Fixed misplaced rwsem init.
