ext4_xattr_set_handle() eventually ends up calling
ext4_mark_inode_dirty() which tries to expand the inode by shifting the
EAs. This leads to the xattr_sem being downed again and leading to a
deadlock.

This patch makes sure that if ext4_xattr_set_handle() is in the
call-chain, ext4_mark_inode_dirty() will not expand the inode.
