[PATCH] md/bitmap: remove bitmap writeback daemon



md/bitmap currently has a separate thread to wait for writes to the bitmap
file to complete (as we cannot get a callback on that action).

However this isn't needed as bitmap_unplug is called from process context and
waits for the writeback thread to do it's work.  The same result can be
achieved by doing the waiting directly in bitmap_unplug.
