bdi: introduce BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO

As discussed at

  https://lkml.kernel.org/r/<20170728165604.10455-1-ross.zwisler@linux.intel.com>

someday we will remove rw_page().  If so, we need something to detect
such super-fast storage on which synchronous IO operations like the
current rw_page are always a win.

Introduces BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO to indicate such devices.  With it, we
could use various optimization techniques.
