This patchset avoids transaction reservation recursion by reintroducing
the discarded PF_FSTRANS in a new way, suggested by Dave. In this new
implementation, four new helpers are introduced, which are
xfs_trans_context_{set, clear, update} and fstrans_context_active,
suggested by Dave. And re-using the task->journal_info to indicates
whehter the task is in fstrans or not, suggested by Willy

Patch #1 is picked from Willy's patchset "Overhaul memalloc_no*"[1]

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/linux-mm/20200625113122.7540-1-willy@infradead.org/

v7:
- check fstrans recursion for XFS only, by introducing a new member in
  struct writeback_control.

v6:
- add Michal's ack and comment in patch #1.

v5:
- pick one of Willy's patch
- introduce four new helpers, per Dave

v4:
- retitle from "xfs: introduce task->in_fstrans for transaction reservation recursion protection"
- reuse current->journal_info, per Willy
