Source kernel commit: 45e46c998cd75749f6975ffdeeb9a59768e4fcd3

This patch modifies the attr set routines to be delay ready. This means
they no longer roll or commit transactions, but instead return -EAGAIN
to have the calling routine roll and refresh the transaction.  In this
series, xfs_attr_set_args has become xfs_attr_set_iter, which uses a
state machine like switch to keep track of where it was when EAGAIN was
returned. See xfs_attr.h for a more detailed diagram of the states.

Two new helper functions have been added: xfs_attr_rmtval_find_space and
xfs_attr_rmtval_set_blk.  They provide a subset of logic similar to
xfs_attr_rmtval_set, but they store the current block in the delay attr
context to allow the caller to roll the transaction between allocations.
This helps to simplify and consolidate code used by
xfs_attr_leaf_addname and xfs_attr_node_addname. xfs_attr_set_args has
now become a simple loop to refresh the transaction until the operation
is completed.  Lastly, xfs_attr_rmtval_remove is no longer used, and is
removed.

+ * Below is a state machine diagram for attr set operations.
+ *
+ * It seems the challenge with understanding this system comes from trying to
+ * absorb the state machine all at once, when really one should only be looking
+ * at it with in the context of a single function. Once a state sensitive
+ * function is called, the idea is that it "takes ownership" of the
+ * state machine. It isn't concerned with the states that may have belonged to
+ * it's calling parent. Only the states relevant to itself or any other
+ * subroutines there in. Once a calling function hands off the state machine to
+ * a subroutine, it needs to respect the simple rule that it doesn't "own" the
+ * state machine anymore, and it's the responsibility of that calling function
+ * to propagate the -EAGAIN back up the call stack. Upon reentry, it is
+ * committed to re-calling that subroutine until it returns something other than
+ * -EAGAIN. Once that subroutine signals completion (by returning anything other
+ * than -EAGAIN), the calling function can resume using the state machine.
