Subject[Patch 2/2] 2.4.20-pre4/ext3: Fix "buffer_jdirty" assert failure.
There was a race window in buffer refiling where we could temporarily
expose the journal's internal BH_JBDDirect flag as BH_Dirty, which is
visible to the rest of the VFS. That doesn't affect the journaling,
because we hold journal_head locks while the buffer is in this transient
state, but bdflush can see the buffer and write it out unexpectedly,
causing ext3 to find the buffer in an unexpected state later.

The fix simply keeps the dirty bits clear during the internal buffer
processing, restoring the state to the private BH_JBDDirect once
refiling is complete.
