Subject: jbd: wait for already submitted t_sync_datalist buffer to complete
From: Hisashi Hifumi <>

In the current jbd code, if a buffer on BJ_SyncData list is dirty and not
locked, the buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list, submitted to the IO and
waited for IO completion.

But the fsstress test showed the case that when a buffer was already
submitted to the IO just before the buffer_dirty(bh) check, the buffer was
not waited for IO completion.

Following patch solves this problem.  If it is assumed that a buffer is
submitted to the IO before the buffer_dirty(bh) check and still being
written to disk, this buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list.
