Subject: [RFCv4 3/9] ext4: Use generic_buffer_fsync() implementation

ext4 when got converted to iomap for dio, it copied __generic_file_fsync
implementation to avoid taking inode_lock in order to avoid any deadlock
(since iomap takes an inode_lock while calling generic_write_sync()).

The previous patch already added generic_buffer_fsync() which does not
take any inode_lock(). Hence kill the redundant code and use
generic_buffer_fsync() function instead.
