Default Add writepages for GFS2 jdata

From: Steven Whitehouse <swhiteho@redhat.com>

This patch resolves a lock ordering issue where we had been getting
a transaction lock in the wrong order with respect to the page lock.
By using writepages rather than just writepage, it is then possible
to start a transaction before locking the page, and thus matching the
locking order elsewhere in the code.
