fs: clear writeback errors in inode_init_always
In inode_init_always(), we clear the inode mapping flags, which clears any retained error (AS_EIO, AS_ENOSPC) bits. Unfortunately, we do not also clear wb_err, which means that old mapping errors can leak through to new inodes. This is crucial for the XFS inode allocation path because we recycle old in-core inodes and we do not want error state from an old file to leak into the new file. This bug was discovered by running generic/036 and generic/047 in a loop and noticing that the EIOs generated by the collision of direct and buffered writes in generic/036 would survive the remount between 036 and 047, and get reported to the fsyncs (on different files!) in generic/047.
