Yeah, the patch Aneesh sent to change where we added the inode to the
dirty list was false lead. The right fix is in the ext4 patch queue
now. I think we have the problem licked and a quick test showed it
increased the compilebench MB/s by a very tiny amount (enough so that
I wasnt sure whether or not it was measurement error), but it does
avoid the needly fragmentation.
