Zheng Liu - April 28, 2012, 3:39 a.m.
From: Zheng Liu <wenqing.lz@taobao.com>

EXT4_GET_BLOCKS_NO_LOCK flag is added to indicate that we don't need to acquire
i_data_sem lock in ext4_map_blocks.  Meanwhile, it lets _ext4_get_block do not
start a new journal because when we do a overwrite dio, there is no any
metadata that needs to be modified.

We define a new function called ext4_get_block_write_nolock, which is used in
dio overwrite nolock.  In this function, it doesn't try to acquire i_data_sem
lock and doesn't start a new journal as it does a lookup.
