Subject: [PATCH] writeback: fix use-after-free in finish_writeback_work()

finish_writeback_work() reads @done->waitq after decrementing
@done->cnt.  However, once @done->cnt reaches zero, @done may be freed
(from stack) at any moment and @done->waitq can contain something
unrelated by the time finish_writeback_work() tries to read it.  This
led to the following crash.

  "BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000002"

Fix it by reading and caching @done->waitq before decrementing
@done->cnt.
