Hi,

The follow step can reproduce the bug[1] reported before easily. And the 
bug we meet seems same. Following patch will fix the bug.

3b136499e906 ext4: fix data corruption in data=journal mode
b90197b65518 ext4: use private version of page_zero_new_buffers() for 
data=journal mode


1. mkfs.ext4
2. touch $tofile(ino == 12)
3. touch $fromfile(ino == 13) and write 4k to fromfile and sync

mmap $fromfile 4k
and write 4k
to $tofile

...
generic_perform_write
  ext4_write_begin
   ext4_journal_start
   (trans 1)
  if (ino == 12) sleep for 30s
  ...                           truncate $fromfile
                                to 0
  copied=0,bytes=4k
  ext4_journalled_write_end
   page_zero_new_buffers
    mark_buffer_dirty
   write_end_fn

    __jbd2_journal_file_buffer
     test_clear_buffer_dirty
     __jbd2_journal_temp_unlink_buffer
   ext4_journal_stop

                                                  trans1 commit
                                                  ...

     set_buffer_freed
                                                  forget list
                                                   ...
                                                   clear_buffer_jbddirty
                                                   ...
                                                   J_ASSERT_BH(bh,
                                                   !buffer_dirty(bh))
                                                   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                                   trigger the bug...
