Yep, it's been that way since 

fcf6b1b ext4: refactor ext4_move_extents code base

and it's pretty obviously not right as it is, and
if there's any doubt the comments make it clear:

+ * Locking:
+ *             i_mutex is held for both inodes
+ *             i_data_sem is locked for write for both inodes
