Subject: [PATCH v3 03/11] fs: only specify I_DIRTY_TIME when needed in generic_update_time()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@...gle.com>

generic_update_time() always passes I_DIRTY_TIME to
__mark_inode_dirty(), which doesn't really make sense because (a)
generic_update_time() might be asked to do only an i_version update, not
also a timestamps update; and (b) I_DIRTY_TIME is only supposed to be
set in i_state if the filesystem has lazytime enabled, so using it
unconditionally in generic_update_time() is inconsistent.

As a result there is a weird edge case where if only an i_version update
was requested (not also a timestamps update) but it is no longer needed
(i.e. inode_maybe_inc_iversion() returns false), then I_DIRTY_TIME will
be set in i_state even if the filesystem isn't mounted with lazytime.

Fix this by only passing I_DIRTY_TIME to __mark_inode_dirty() if the
timestamps were updated and the filesystem has lazytime enabled.
