vfs: Remove unnecessary flushing of block devices

It is not necessary to write block devices twice. The reason why we first did
flush and then proper sync is that
  for_each_bdev() {
    write_bdev()
    wait_for_completion()
  }
is much slower than
  for_each_bdev()
    write_bdev()
  for_each_bdev()
    wait_for_completion()
when there is bigger amount of data. But as is seen in the above, there's no real
need to scan pages and submit them twice. We just need to separate the submission
and waiting part. This patch does that.
