buffer: Avoid setting buffer bits that are already set
It's expensive to set buffer flags that are already set, because that causes a costly cache line transition. A common case is setting the "verified" flag during ext4 writes. This patch checks for the flag being set first. With the AIM7/creat-clo benchmark testing on a 48G ramdisk based-on ext4 file system, we see 3.3%(15431->15936) improvement of aim7.jobs-per-min on a 2-sockets broadwell platform. What the benchmark does is: it forks 3000 processes, and each process do the following: a) open a new file b) close the file c) delete the file until loop=100*1000 times. The original patch is contributed by Andi Kleen.
