    FBSD: Skip page flush in afs_DoPartialWrite
    Currently, the FBSD afs_vop_putpages() will call afs_write(), which
    can then go through afs_DoPartialWrite -> afs_StoreAllSegments ->
    osi_VM_StoreAllSegments -> vm_object_page_clean, which will then try
    to go through afs_vop_putpages() again.
    In this call stack, we're only calling afs_StoreAllSegments to reduce
    our dirty cache chunks (afs_StoreAllSegments does nothing if we don't
    have that many dirty cache chunks); we don't need to reduce dirty
    pages, so calling osi_VM_StoreAllSegments is not needed.
    To avoid calling osi_VM_StoreAllSegments in this situation, add a new
    flag AFS_NOVMSYNC, which skips the osi_VM_StoreAllSegments call and
    just flushes the dirty cache chunks. Use this flag in
    afs_DoPartialWrite on FBSD, and slightly refactor the ifdefs to reduce
    some code duplication.
