No need for the extern.

Nit, but to me it would seem cleaner if all the fallback handling
was moved into a separate helper function.  Or in fact by not
using generic_file_write_iter even for buffered I/O and at doing
the pre-I/O checks and the final generic_write_sync in common code in
ext2 for direct and buffered I/O.

No need for braes around the < operation, but I think you might need
them around the shift.

Also an overly long line here.

No need for the second set of inner braces here either.
