linux-next: vfs tree build warning

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next build (x86_64_allmodconfig) produced this warning:

fs/logfs/inode.c:399: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type

Introduced by commit bc39e28236344af617473df80abb7de43176511e ("pass
writeback_control to ->write_inode") from the vfs tree interacting with
commit 5db53f3e80dee2d9dff5e534f9e9fe1db17c9936 ("[LogFS] add new flash
file system") from the logfs tree.

This will need a fixup patch (see below) which I can carry in the
linux-next tree. There may, of course, be a better fix (which I can
carry if someone sends it to me).
