ocfs2: record UNWRITTEN extents when populate write desc
To support direct io in ocfs2_write_begin_nolock & ocfs2_write_end_nolock.
There is still one issue in the direct write procedure.
phase 1: alloc extent with UNWRITTEN flag
phase 2: submit direct data to disk, add zero page to page cache
phase 3: clear UNWRITTEN flag when data has been written to disk
When there are 2 direct write A(0~3KB),B(4~7KB) writing to the same
cluster 0~7KB (cluster size 8KB). Write request A arrive phase 2 first,
it will zero the region (4~7KB). Before request A enter to phase 3,
request B arrive phase 2, it will zero region (0~3KB). This is just like
request B steps request A.
To resolve this issue, we should let request B knows this cluster is already
under zero, to prevent it from steps the previous write request.
This patch will add function ocfs2_unwritten_check() to do this job. It
will record all clusters that are under direct write(it will be recorded
in the 'ip_unwritten_list' member of inode info), and prevent the later
direct write writing to the same cluster to do the zero work again.
