bigfile/virtmem: Maintain dirty pages list for a fileh

This allows writeout code not to scan whole pagemap to find dirty pages
to write out, which should be faster.

But more importantly iterating whole pagemap on writeout would become
unsafe, when in upcoming patch storeblk() will be called with virt_lock
released: because there pagemap could be modified e.g. due to processing
other read accesses.

So maintain fileh->dirty_pages list and use it when we need to go
through dirtied pages.
