Subject: [PATCH 7/9] ext4: serialize truncate with owerwrite DIO workers V2

Jan Kara have spotted interesting issue:
There are  potential data corruption issue with  direct IO overwrites
racing with truncate:
 Like:
  dio write                      truncate_task
  ->ext4_ext_direct_IO
   ->overwrite == 1
    ->down_read(&EXT4_I(inode)->i_data_sem);
    ->mutex_unlock(&inode->i_mutex);
                               ->ext4_setattr()
                                ->inode_dio_wait()
                                ->truncate_setsize()
                                ->ext4_truncate()
                                 ->down_write(&EXT4_I(inode)->i_data_sem);
    ->__blockdev_direct_IO
     ->ext4_get_block
     ->submit_io()
    ->up_read(&EXT4_I(inode)->i_data_sem);
                                 # truncate data blocks, allocate them to
                                 # other inode - bad stuff happens because
                                 # dio is still in flight.

In order to serialize with truncate dio worker should grab extra i_dio_count
reference before drop i_mutex.

Changes agains V1:
- wake up dio waiters before i_mutex.
