NFS: Don't use SetPageError in the NFS writeback code
The writeback code is already capable of passing errors back to user space by means of the open_context->error. In the case of ENOSPC, Neil Brown is reporting seeing 2 errors being returned. Neil writes: "e.g. if /mnt2/ if an nfs mounted filesystem that has no space then strace dd if=/dev/zero conv=fsync >> /mnt2/afile count=1 reported Input/output error and the relevant parts of the strace output are: write(1, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 512) = 512 fsync(1) = -1 EIO (Input/output error) close(1) = -1 ENOSPC (No space left on device)" Neil then shows that the duplication of error messages appears to be due to the use of the PageError() mechanism, which causes filemap_fdatawait_range to return the extra EIO. The regression was introduced by commit 7b281ee026552f10862b617a2a51acf49c829554 (NFS: fsync() must exit with an error if page writeback failed). Fix this by removing the call to SetPageError(), and just relying on open_context->error reporting the ENOSPC back to fsync().
