writeback: simplify and split bdi_start_writeback
bdi_start_writeback now never gets a superblock passed, so we can just remove that case. And to further untangle the code and flatten the call stack split it into two trivial helpers for it's two callers. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
