commit 334132ae921a14ac2b2ba48e174136f7f2c9aae1 upstream

In "writeback: fix writeback_inodes_wb from writeback_inodes_sb" I
accidentally removed the requeue_io if we need to skip a superblock
because we can't pin it.  Add it back, otherwise we're getting spurious
lockups after multiple xfstests runs.
