Updated patch below

ext4: Fix ext4_bmap to flush the data to the disk with delalloc

From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

With delalloc we don't do block allocation in the write_begin/write_end.
So when using bmap we first need to flush data to the disk so that blocks
get allocated and then call generic_block_bmap.
