xfs: serialize unaligned dio writes against all other dio writes

XFS applies more strict serialization constraints to unaligned
direct writes to accommodate things like direct I/O layer zeroing,
unwritten extent conversion, etc. Unaligned submissions acquire the
exclusive iolock and wait for in-flight dio to complete to ensure
multiple submissions do not race on the same block and cause data

This generally works in the case of an aligned dio followed by an
unaligned dio, but the serialization is lost if I/Os occur in the
opposite order. If an unaligned write is submitted first and
immediately followed by an overlapping, aligned write, the latter
submits without the typical unaligned serialization barriers because
there is no indication of an unaligned dio still in-flight. This can
lead to unpredictable results.

To provide proper unaligned dio serialization, require that such
direct writes are always the only dio allowed in-flight at one time
for a particular inode. We already acquire the exclusive iolock and
drain pending dio before submitting the unaligned dio. Wait once
more after the dio submission to hold the iolock across the I/O and
prevent further submissions until the unaligned I/O completes. This
is heavy handed, but consistent with the current pre-submission
serialization for unaligned direct writes.
