Subject[43/53] ext4: avoid hangs in ext4_da_should_update_i_disksize()
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange@redhat.com>

commit ea51d132dbf9b00063169c1159bee253d9649224 upstream.

If the pte mapping in generic_perform_write() is unmapped between
iov_iter_fault_in_readable() and iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic(), the
"copied" parameter to ->end_write can be zero. ext4 couldn't cope with
it with delayed allocations enabled. This skips the i_disksize
enlargement logic if copied is zero and no new data was appeneded to
the inode.

This is 100% reproducible with some autonuma development code tuned in
a very aggressive manner (not normal way even for knumad) which does
"exotic" changes to the ptes. It wouldn't normally trigger but I don't
see why it can't happen normally if the page is added to swap cache in
between the two faults leading to "copied" being zero (which then
hangs in ext4). So it should be fixed. Especially possible with lumpy
reclaim (albeit disabled if compaction is enabled) as that would
ignore the young bits in the ptes.
