SubjectRe: 2.4.14 still not making fs dirty when it should

Yes, I thought I did as well. It may have gotten lost during the
-ac -> Linus merge, as I thought it was in there (some other ext2
fixes that were definitely in -ac are not in 2.4.16). Luckily,
I was just generating patches of all my local changes last night,
so I have a brand-new patch to fix this.

It _should_ do the right thing, but please give it a once-over, as
I wrote it a long time ago. The theory is - changing the dirty
flag is synchronously written to disk, but other superblock changes
are async as they always have been (sync_super vs. commit_super).

This should definitely go into 2.4.17-pre and 2.5.0, even though I
am personally only using ext3 at this point (I used this patch for
a long time while ext3 was not done on 2.4 though).

Cheers, Andreas
