Subject[PATCH 49/52] ext4: fix delalloc i_disksize early update issue
Date
From: Mingming Cao <cmm@us.ibm.com>

Ext4_da_write_end() used walk_page_buffers() with a callback function of
ext4_bh_unmapped_or_delay() to check if it extended the file size
without allocating any blocks (since in this case i_disksize needs to be
updated). However, this is didn't work proprely because the buffer head
has not been marked dirty yet --- this is done later in
block_commit_write() --- which caused ext4_bh_unmapped_or_delay() to
always return false.

In addition, walk_page_buffers() checks all of the buffer heads covering
the page, and the only buffer_head that should be checked is the one
covering the end of the write. Otherwise, given a 1k blocksize
filesystem and a 4k page size, the buffer head covering the first 1k
stripe of the file could be unmapped (because it was a sparse file), and
the second or third buffer_head covering that page could be mapped, and
using walk_page_buffers() would fail in this case since it would stop at
the first unmapped buffer_head and return true.

The core problem is that walk_page_buffers() was intended to do work in
a callback function, and a non-zero return value indicated a failure,
which termined the walk of the buffer heads covering the page. It was
not intended to be used with a boolean function, such as
ext4_bh_unmapped_or_delay().

Add addtional fix from Aneesh to protect i_disksize update rave with truncate.
