Subject[patch 17/39] ext4: Fix the delalloc writepages to allocate blocks at the right offset.

2.6.28-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

(cherry picked from commit 791b7f08954869d7b8ff438f3dac3cfb39778297)

When iterating through the pages which have mapped buffer_heads, we
failed to update the b_state value. This results in allocating blocks
at logical offset 0.
