writeback: rework wb_[dec|inc]_stat family of functions
Currently the writeback statistics code uses a percpu counters to hold various statistics. Furthermore we have 2 families of functions - those which disable local irq and those which doesn't and whose names begin with double underscore. However, they both end up calling __add_wb_stats which in turn calls percpu_counter_add_batch which is already irq-safe. Exploiting this fact allows to eliminated the __wb_* functions since they don't add any further protection than we already have. Furthermore, refactor the wb_* function to call __add_wb_stat directly without the irq-disabling dance. This will likely result in better runtime of code which deals with modifying the stat counters. While at it also document why percpu_counter_add_batch is in fact preempt and irq-safe since at least 3 people got confused.
