Subject: [PATCH 3.8 032/116] ext4: fix zeroing of page during writeback

3.8.13.27 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jan Kara <jack@...e.cz>

commit eeece469dedadf3918bad50ad80f4616a0064e90 upstream.

Tail of a page straddling inode size must be zeroed when being written
out due to POSIX requirement that modifications of mmaped page beyond
inode size must not be written to the file. ext4_bio_write_page() did
this only for blocks fully beyond inode size but didn't properly zero
blocks partially beyond inode size. Fix this.

The problem has been uncovered by mmap_11-4 test in openposix test suite
(part of LTP).
