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

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

From: Chengguang Xu <cgxu@mykernel.net>

commit e8d4bfe3a71537284a90561f77c85dea6c154369 upstream.

When executing filesystem sync or umount on overlayfs,
dirty data does not get synced as expected on upper filesystem.
This patch fixes sync filesystem method to keep data consistency
for overlayfs.
