2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit c5efa5fc91f1f6d1d47e65f39e7ec6d1157c777d upstream.

If we exit from nfs_commit_inode() without ensuring that the COMMIT rpc
call has been completed, we must re-mark the inode as dirty. Otherwise,
future calls to sync_inode() with the WB_SYNC_ALL flag set will fail to
ensure that the data is on the disk.
