Subject: [PATCH 5/6 v5] ext4: fix fsx truncate failure

This patch corrects a bug found during extended fsx
testing for the first two patches.

This bug is caused because the truncate routine only zeros
the unblock aligned portion of the last page.  This means
that the block aligned portions of the page appearing after
i_size are left unzeroed, and the buffer heads still mapped.

This bug is corrected by using ext4_discard_partial_page_buffers
in the truncate routine to zero the partial page and unmap
the buffer headers
