Hi Ashish,

I guess that this patch is against mainline kernel, right?  The commit
log is right before we use extent status tree to track all extent
information.  In dev branch of ext4 tree, we track all extent status in
status tree.  So we need to remove extent from status tree in punch
hole.

Thanks,
                                                - Zheng
