Subject[PATCH] Re: test12-pre6
	If get_block() fails in block_prepare_write() we should zero
the blocks we've allocated and mark them dirty. We don't (i.e. we leave
the random junk in file in that case). Fix: do it. Moreover, if
->prepare_write() fails generic_file_write() is not going to write the user's
data into that page. It's OK if we were in hole (we got zeroes in all
new blocks, so it's equivalent to doing nothing with that page), but it's
not OK if we extended the file (we would get the file silently extended
with zeroes we've never intended to write there or we would get blocks
allocated past the ->i_size - the former screws applications, the latter
makes fsck unhappy). Fix: if the failed call extended the file call
vmtruncate() to clean the mess up.

Please, apply.
