ocfs2: use c_new to indicate newly allocated extents

To support direct io in ocfs2_write_begin_nolock & ocfs2_write_end_nolock.

There is a problem in ocfs2's direct io implement: if system crashed
after extents allocated, and before data return, we will get a extent
with dirty data on disk.  This problem violate the journal=order
semantics, which means meta changes take effect after data written to
disk.  To resolve this issue, direct write can use the UNWRITTEN flag to
describe a extent during direct data writeback.  The direct write
procedure should act in the following order:

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

This patch is to change the 'c_unwritten' member of
ocfs2_write_cluster_desc to 'c_clear_unwritten'.  Means whether to clear
the unwritten flag.  It do not care if a extent is allocated or not.
And use 'c_new' to specify a newly allocated extent.  So the direct io
procedure can use c_clear_unwritten to control the UNWRITTEN bit on
