 I've just now noticed the resume_readers argument.
a) You probably meant to call ext4_clear_inode_state() when that argument
is set?
b) You need a smp_mb() before clearing DIOREAD_LOCK?
c) Please remove the resume_readers argument and make a separate function
from that. That new function could be called:
ext4_inode_unblock_unlocked_dio().
