writeback: make wb_writeback() take an argument structure
We need to be able to pass in range_cyclic as well, so instead of growing yet another argument, split the arguments into a struct wb_writeback_args structure that we can use internally. Also makes it easier to just copy all members to an on-stack struct, since we can't access work after clearing the pending bit. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
