Commit d4388340ae0b ("fs: convert mpage_readpages to mpage_readahead")
converted gfs2 and other filesystems from the ->readpages to the
->readahead address space operation.  Other than ->readpages,
->readahead is passed the pages to readahead locked.  Due to problems in
the current page locking strategy, this is now causing deadlocks in
gfs2.

Fix this by reinstating mpage_readpages from before commit d4388340ae0b
and by converting gfs2 back to ->readpages.

+/**
+ * mpage_readpages - populate an address space with some pages & start reads against them
+ * @mapping: the address_space
+ * @pages: The address of a list_head which contains the target pages.  These
+ *   pages have their ->index populated and are otherwise uninitialised.
+ *   The page at @pages->prev has the lowest file offset, and reads should be
+ *   issued in @pages->prev to @pages->next order.
+ * @nr_pages: The number of pages at *@pages
+ * @get_block: The filesystem's block mapper function.
+ *
+ * This function walks the pages and the blocks within each page, building and
+ * emitting large BIOs.
+ *
+ * If anything unusual happens, such as:
+ *
+ * - encountering a page which has buffers
+ * - encountering a page which has a non-hole after a hole
+ * - encountering a page with non-contiguous blocks
+ *
+ * then this code just gives up and calls the buffer_head-based read function.
+ * It does handle a page which has holes at the end - that is a common case:
+ * the end-of-file on blocksize < PAGE_SIZE setups.
+ *
+ * BH_Boundary explanation:
+ *
+ * There is a problem.  The mpage read code assembles several pages, gets all
+ * their disk mappings, and then submits them all.  That's fine, but obtaining
+ * the disk mappings may require I/O.  Reads of indirect blocks, for example.
+ *
+ * So an mpage read of the first 16 blocks of an ext2 file will cause I/O to be
+ * submitted in the following order:
+ *
+ * 	12 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 13 14 15 16
+ *
+ * because the indirect block has to be read to get the mappings of blocks
+ * 13,14,15,16.  Obviously, this impacts performance.
+ *
+ * So what we do it to allow the filesystem's get_block() function to set
+ * BH_Boundary when it maps block 11.  BH_Boundary says: mapping of the block
+ * after this one will require I/O against a block which is probably close to
+ * this one.  So you should push what I/O you have currently accumulated.
+ *
+ * This all causes the disk requests to be issued in the correct order.
