Subject[PATCH 3/5] ext4: call blkdev_issue_flush on fsync
To ensure that bits are truly on-disk after an fsync or fdatasync, we
should force a disk flush explicitly when there is dirty data/metadata
and the journal didn't emit a write barrier (either because metadata is
not being synched or barriers are disabled).
