congestion_wait() is indistinguishable from
schedule_timeout_uninterruptible().  It is best avoided and should be

It is not needed in ext4_bio_write_page().  There are two cases.
If there are no ->io_bio yet, then it is appropriate to use __GFP_NOFAIL
which does the waiting in a better place.  The code already uses this
flag on the second attempt.  This patch changes to it always use that
flag for this case.

If there *are* ->io_bio (in which case the allocation was non-blocking)
we submit the io and return the first case.  No waiting is needed in
this case.

So remove the congestion_wait() call, and simplify the code so that the
two cases are somewhat clearer.

Remove the "if (io->io_bio)" before calling ext4_io_submit() as that
test is performed internally by that function.
