Btrfs: fix unwritten extent buffers and hangs on future writeback attempts
The lock_extent_buffer_io() returns 1 to the caller to tell it everything went fine and the callers needs to start writeback for the extent buffer (submit a bio, etc), 0 to tell the caller everything went fine but it does not need to start writeback for the extent buffer, and a negative value if some error happened. When it's about to return 1 it tries to lock all pages, and if a try lock on a page fails, and we didn't flush any existing bio in our "epd", it calls flush_write_bio(epd) and overwrites the return value of 1 to 0 or an error. The page might have been locked elsewhere, not with the goal of starting writeback of the extent buffer, and even by some code other than btrfs, like page migration for example, so it does not mean the writeback of the extent buffer was already started by some other task, so returning a 0 tells the caller (btree_write_cache_pages()) to not start writeback for the extent buffer. Note that epd might currently have either no bio, so flush_write_bio() returns 0 (success) or it might have a bio for another extent buffer with a lower index (logical address). Since we return 0 with the EXTENT_BUFFER_WRITEBACK bit set on the extent buffer and writeback is never started for the extent buffer, future attempts to writeback the extent buffer will hang forever waiting on that bit to be cleared, since it can only be cleared after writeback completes. Such hang is reported with a trace like the following: [49887.347053] INFO: task btrfs-transacti:1752 blocked for more than 122 seconds. [49887.347059] Not tainted 5.2.13-gentoo #2 [49887.347060] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message.

We also need to clear the EXTENT_BUFFER_WRITEBACK bit in case flush_write_bio() returns an error, otherwise it will hang any future attempts to writeback the extent buffer, and undo all work done before (set back EXTENT_BUFFER_DIRTY, etc). This is a regression introduced in the 5.2 kernel.
