I mean something like this:

- fsync() - shrink
- f2fs_do_sync_file
- __write_node_page
- set_page_writeback(page#0)
: remove DIRTY/TOWRITE flag
- f2fs_fsync_node_pages
: won't find page #0 as TOWRITE flag was removeD
- f2fs_wait_on_node_pages_writeback
: wont' wait page #0 writeback as it was not in fsync_node_list list.
- f2fs_add_fsync_node_entry

Thanks,
