writeback: Initial tracing support
Trace queue/sched/exec parts of the writeback loop. This provides insight into when and why flusher threads are scheduled to run. e.g a sync invocation leaves traces like: sync-[...]: writeback_queue: bdi 8:0: sb_dev 8:1 nr_pages=7712 sync_mode=0 kupdate=0 range_cyclic=0 background=0 flush-8:0-[...]: writeback_exec: bdi 8:0: sb_dev 8:1 nr_pages=7712 sync_mode=0 kupdate=0 range_cyclic=0 background=0 This also lays the foundation for adding more writeback tracing to provide deeper insight into the whole writeback path. The original tracing code is from Jens Axboe, though this version is a rewrite as a result of the code being traced changing significantly.
