Hey Aneesh,

I've been going through patches in the patch queue and I noticed that
the subsequent patch 

[PATCH 2/2] ext4: Mark the buffer_heads as dirty and uptodate after prepare_write

has been merged to mainline, but this one wasn't.  From looking at the
e-mail record, you said that the second one fixed the rtorrent
corruption --- but looking at this patch and its description, it looks
like this one should perhaps get pushed to Linus ASAP as well.  Do you
remember if both patches were needed to fix the rtorrent corruption
problem, or only the second one?
