Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Create helper function for EXT4_IO_END_UNWRITTEN and i_aiodio_unwritten.

From: Tao Ma <boyu.mt@...bao.com>

EXT4_IO_END_UNWRITTEN flag set and the increase of i_aiodio_unwritten should
be done simultaneously since ext4_end_io_nolock always clear the flag and
decrease the counter in the same time.

We have found some bugs that the flag is set while leaving i_aiodio_unwritten
unchanged. So this patch just tries to creat a helper function to wrap them
to avoid any future bug. The idea is inspired by Eric.

Ted,
	This patch is based on the patch with subject "ext4: Resolve the hang
of direct i/o read in handling EXT4_IO_END_UNWRITTEN.". I meant it for the next
merge window, but if you think it is also ok for 3.1, go ahead.
