This was part of the patch series "ext4: Fix data corruption when
extending DIO write races with buffered read" but which fixes an
unrelated problem.  The patch series was dropped in favor of a
different approach, but it looks like this patch is still applicable,
so I've applied with a minor typo fix in the commit description.
