writeback: fix writeback completion notifications
The code dealing with bdi_work->state and completion of a bdi_work is a major mess currently. This patch makes sure we directly use one set of flags to deal with it, and use it consistently, which means: - always notify about completion from the rcu callback. We only ever wait for it from on-stack callers, so this simplification does not even cause a theoretical slowdown currently. It also makes sure we don't miss out on the notification if we ever add other callers to wait for it. - make earlier completion notification depending on the on-stack allocation, not the sync mode. If we introduce new callers that want to do WB_SYNC_NONE writeback from on-stack callers this will be nessecary. Also rename bdi_wait_on_work_clear to bdi_wait_on_work_done and inline a few small functions into their only caller to make the code understandable.
