Subject: [PATCH]JBD2/JBD: race condition while writing updates to journal

resend this patch:

At committing phase, we call jbd2_journal_write_metadata_buffer to
prepare log block's buffer_head, in this function, new_bh->b_data is set
to b_frozen_data or bh_in->b_data. We call "jbd_unlock_bh_state(bh_in)"
too early, since at this point , we haven't file bh_in to BJ_shadow
list, and we may set new_bh->b_data to bh_in->b_data, at this time,
another thread may call get write access of bh_in, modify bh_in->b_data
and dirty it. So , if new_bh->b_data is set to bh_in->b_data, the
committing transaction may flush the newly modified buffer content to
disk, preserve work done in jbd2_journal_get_write_access is useless.
jbd also has this problem.

here is the patch based on kernel version 2.6.30:
