Subject[PATCH] implement posix O_SYNC and O_DSYNC semantics
While Linux provided an O_SYNC flag basically since day 1, it took until
Linux 2.4.0-test12pre2 to actually get it implemented for filesystems,
since that day we had generic_osync_around with only minor changes and the
great "For now, when the user asks for O_SYNC, we'll actually give O_DSYNC"
comment. This patch intends to actually give us real O_SYNC semantics
in addition to the O_DSYNC semantics. After Jan's O_SYNC patches which
are required before this patch it's actually surprisingly simple, we
just need to figure out when to set the datasync flag to vfs_fsync_range
and when not.

This patch renames the existing O_SYNC flag to O_DSYNC while keeping
it's numerical value to keep binary compatibility, and adds a new real
O_SYNC flag. To guarantee backwards compatiblity it is defined as
expanding to both the O_DSYNC and the new additional binary flag
(__O_SYNC) to make sure we are backwards-compatible when compiled against
the new headers.

This also means that all places that don't care about the differences
can just check O_DSYNC and get the right behaviour for O_SYNC, too - only
places that actuall care need to check __O_SYNC in addition. Drivers
and network filesystems have been updated in a fail safe way to always
do the full sync magic if O_DSYNC is set. The few places setting O_SYNC
for lower layers are kept that way for now to stay failsafe.

We enforce that O_DSYNC is set when __O_SYNC is set early in the
open path to make sure we always get these sane options.

Note that parisc really fucked up their headers as they already define
a O_DSYNC that has always been a no-op. We try to repair it by using it
for the new O_DSYNC and redefinining O_SYNC to send both the traditional
O_SYNC numerical value _and_ the O_DSYNC one.
