write_out_data in JBD

Here is a code fragment starting at "write_out_data:" in

Let's assume that there is a single "jh" on the list.

while (commit_transaction->t_sync_datalist) {

jh = commit_transaction->t_sync_datalist;
commit_transaction->t_sync_datalist = jh->b_tnext;

// "commit_transaction->t_sync_datalist" happens always
// to point at our single "jh"

bh = jh2bh(jh);

// Assume not locked
// Assume dirty

if (buffer_dirty(bh)) {
wbuf[bufs++] = bh;
if (bufs == journal->j_wbufsize) {
goto write_out_data;
} else ...

I think our single "jh" will be put on "wbuf[]" repeatedly
("journal->j_wbufsize" times).
