VFS: export sync_sb_inodes
This patch exports the 'sync_sb_inodes()' which is needed for UBIFS because it has to force write-back from time to time. Namely, the UBIFS budgeting subsystem forces write-back when its pessimistic callculations show that there is no free space on the media. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>
