xfs: fix incorrect b_offset initialisation
Because we no longer use the page cache for buffering, there is no direct block number to page offset relationship anymore. xfs_buf_get_pages is still setting up b_offset as if there was some relationship, and that is leading to incorrectly setting up *uncached* buffers that don't overwrite b_offset once they've had pages allocated. For cached buffers, the first block of the buffer is always at offset zero into the allocated memory. This is true for sub-page sized buffers, as well as for multiple-page buffers. For uncached buffers, b_offset is only non-zero when we are associating specific memory to the buffers, and that is set correctly by the code setting up the buffer. Hence remove the setting of b_offset in xfs_buf_get_pages, because it is now always the wrong thing to do.
