Above issue is happens when enable bigalloc and inline data feature. As
commit 131294c35ed6 fixed delayed allocation bug in ext4_clu_mapped for
bigalloc + inline. But it only resolved issue when has inline data, if
inline data has been converted to extent(ext4_da_convert_inline_data_to_extent)
before writepages, there is no EXT4_STATE_MAY_INLINE_DATA flag. However
i_data is still store inline data in this scene. Then will trigger UAF
when find extent.
To resolve above issue, there is need to add judge "ext4_has_inline_data(inode)"
in ext4_clu_mapped().
