[PATCH] Make BH_Unwritten a first class bufferhead flag V2

Currently, XFS uses BH_PrivateStart for flagging unwritten extent state in a
bufferhead.  Recently, I found the long standing mmap/unwritten extent
conversion bug, and it was to do with partial page invalidation not clearing
the unwritten flag from bufferheads attached to the page but beyond EOF.  See
here for a full explaination:

http://oss.sgi.com/archives/xfs/2006-12/msg00196.html

The solution I have checked into the XFS dev tree involves duplicating code
from block_invalidatepage to clear the unwritten flag from the bufferhead(s),
and then calling block_invalidatepage() to do the rest.

Christoph suggested that this would be better solved by pushing the unwritten
flag into the common buffer head flags and just adding the call to
discard_buffer():

The following patch makes BH_Unwritten a first class citizen.
