Subject: [PATCH 2/3] ext4: fix inode rwsem regression

From: Goldwyn Rodrigues <rgoldwyn@...e.com>

This is similar to 942491c9e6d6 ("xfs: fix AIM7 regression")
Apparently our current rwsem code doesn't like doing the trylock, then
lock for real scheme.  So change our read/write methods to just do the
trylock for the RWF_NOWAIT case.

Fixes: 728fbc0e10b7 ("ext4: nowait aio support")
Signed-off-by: Goldwyn Rodrigues <rgoldwyn@...e.com>
