f2fs: add a sysfs entry to control max_victim_search

Previously during SSR and GC, the maximum number of retrials to find a victim
segment was hard-coded by MAX_VICTIM_SEARCH, 4096 by default.

This number makes an effect on IO locality, when SSR mode is activated, which
results in performance fluctuation on some low-end devices.

If max_victim_search = 4, the victim will be searched like below.
("D" represents a dirty segment, and "*" indicates a selected victim segment.)

 D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9
[   *       ]
      [   *    ]
            [         * ]
	                [ ....]

This patch adds a sysfs entry to control the number dynamically through:
