See the two path[1][2] of inserting request, and path[1] is triggered
4358 times, and the path[2] is triggered 5763 times.

The path[2] is expected behaviour. Not sure path [1] is correct, given
ext4_release_file() is supposed to be called when this inode is
released. That means the file is closed 4358 times during 1GB file
copying to usb storage.

Cc filesystem list.
