Transition of wb->dirty_exceeded from 0 to 1 happens before we go to
sleep in balance_dirty_pages() while transition from 1 to 0 happens when
exiting from balance_dirty_pages(), possibly based on old values. This
does not make a lot of sense since wb->dirty_exceeded should simply
reflect whether wb is over dirty limit and so we should ratelimit
entering to balance_dirty_pages() less. Move the two updates together.
