Yes, different one. Previously the VFS called ->write_super just before
->put_super. Now any left over writeback needs to be dealt with by
the filesystem. For now I have added a call to the write_super method
to all filesystems, but most likely this can be removed later after
an audit by someone who knows the filesystem.
