If nothing is using breada() any more it should definitely go away.

I'm not so sure about bdirty(); it seems like there are legitimate
cases where a FS might want to mark a buffer dirty without releasing
it yet, even if we don't currently have any such cases in the tree.
But I don't really have a strong opinion and we could always bring it
back later.
