bch_writeback_thread() is calling try_to_freeze(), but that's just an
expensive no-op given the fact that the thread is not marked freezable.

I/O helper kthreads, exactly such as the bcache writeback thread, actually
shouldn't be freezable, because they are potentially necessary for
finalizing the image write-out.

After a month, I think, it's time for another ping.

You can just send it to me, I've funneled bcache stable fixes before.

Is it a time to claim (by MAINTAINERS entry) the in-tree bcache orphaned?

I think so.
