cifs: set ra_pages in backing_dev_info
commit 2b6c26a0a62cc0bab0ad487533d5581d7c293fef upstream. Commit 522440ed made cifs set backing_dev_info on the mapping attached to new inodes. This change caused a fairly significant read performance regression, as cifs started doing page-sized reads exclusively. By virtue of the fact that they're allocated as part of cifs_sb_info by kzalloc, the ra_pages on cifs BDIs get set to 0, which prevents any readahead. This forces the normal read codepaths to use readpage instead of readpages causing a four-fold increase in the number of read calls with the default rsize. Fix it by setting ra_pages in the BDI to the same value as that in the default_backing_dev_info.
