bdi: introduce BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO
As discussed at https://lkml.kernel.org/r/<20170728165604.10455-1-ross.zwisler@linux.intel.com> someday we will remove rw_page(). If so, we need something to detect such super-fast storage on which synchronous IO operations like the current rw_page are always a win. Introduces BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO to indicate such devices. With it, we could use various optimization techniques.
