[PATCH] nfs: fix congestion control
The current NFS client congestion logic is severly broken, it marks the backing device congested during each nfs_writepages() call but doesn't mirror this in nfs_writepage() which makes for deadlocks. Also it implements its own waitqueue. Replace this by a more regular congestion implementation that puts a cap on the number of active writeback pages and uses the bdi congestion waitqueue. Also always use an interruptible wait since it makes sense to be able to SIGKILL the process even for mounts without 'intr'.
