So here a proposed patch for fixing this. Works by counting write requests
initiated up till the syncfs call. Since more than one syncfs can be in
progress counts are kept in "buckets" in order to wait for the correct write
requests in each instance.

I tried to make this lightweight, but the cacheline bounce due to the counter is
still there, unfortunately. fc->num_waiting also causes cacheline bouce, so I'm
not going to optimize this (percpu counter?) until that one is also optimizied.

Not yet tested, and I'm not sure how to test this.

Comments?

Thanks,
Miklos
