Subject: [PATCH 5/8] xfs: Protect xfs_file_aio_write() & xfs_setattr_size() with sb_start_write - sb_end_write

Replace racy xfs_wait_for_freeze() check in xfs_file_aio_write() with
a reliable sb_start_write() - sb_end_write() locking. Due to lock ranking
dictated by the page fault code we have to call sb_start_write() after we
acquire ilock.

Similarly we have to protect xfs_setattr_size() because it can modify last
page of truncated file. Because ilock is dropped in xfs_setattr_size() we
have to drop and retake write access as well to avoid deadlocks.
