[PATCH v2 10/11] writeback: make determine_dirtyable_memory() static.

Fri Oct 15 14:14:38 PDT 2010


The determine_dirtyable_memory() function is not used outside of
page writeback.  Make the routine static.  No functional change.
Just a cleanup in preparation for a change that adds memcg dirty
limits consideration into global_dirty_limits().
