Subject: [PATCH 2/4] fs: btrfs: fix data races in extent_write_cache_pages()

The function extent_write_cache_pages is concurrently executed with
itself at runtime in the following call contexts:

Thread 1:
  btrfs_sync_file()
    start_ordered_ops()
      btrfs_fdatawrite_range()
        btrfs_writepages() [via function pointer]
          extent_writepages()
            extent_write_cache_pages()

Thread 2:
  btrfs_writepages() 
    extent_writepages()
      extent_write_cache_pages()

In extent_write_cache_pages():
  index = mapping->writeback_index;
  ...
  mapping->writeback_index = done_index;

The accesses to mapping->writeback_index are not synchronized, and thus
data races for this value can occur.
These data races were found and actually reproduced by our concurrency 
fuzzer.

To fix these races, the spinlock mapping->private_lock is used to
protect the accesses to mapping->writeback_index.
