Subject: [PATCH 00/10] ext4: Bunch of DIO/AIO fixes V3

There are number of races exist caused by lack of synchronization
between DIO workers in flight and truncate/fsync/punch_hole routines
This patch series try to optimize and fix existing DIO/AIO code

I observe significant performance improvements for big SMP hosts
performind DIO for single file.

Testcases which helps me to catch this type of bugs was posted here
http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-fsdevel/msg58312.html
or available on my github repo:

ext4: serialize dio nonlocked reads with defrag workers V3
ext4: punch_hole should wait for DIO writers
ext4: serialize unlocked dio reads with truncate
ext4: endless truncate due to nonlocked dio readers V2
ext4: serialize truncate with owerwrite DIO workers V2
