Subject[PATCH 4.19 41/50] ext4: use ext4_write_inode() when fsyncing w/o a journal
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu>

commit ad211f3e94b314a910d4af03178a0b52a7d1ee0a upstream.

In no-journal mode, we previously used __generic_file_fsync() in
no-journal mode. This triggers a lockdep warning, and in addition,
it's not safe to depend on the inode writeback mechanism in the case
ext4. We can solve both problems by calling ext4_write_inode()
directly.
