Bug Description

User reports a hang under heavy I/O:

The IO hang problem on our cloud is caused by IO hang in block-wbt wbt_wait.
The fix commit id is 2887e41b910bb14fd847cf01ab7a5993db989d88. It is a block write buffer throttle queue lock contention and thundering herd issue in wbt_wait()

We can recreate the problem easily by running concurrent IO from multiple VMs with sequential write. We can provide fio workload as needed for recreate.
