Zheng Liu - July 1, 2012, 2:21 p.m.
From: Zheng Liu <wenqing.lz@taobao.com>

Aligned and overwrite direct I/O can be parallelized.  In ext4_file_dio_write,
we first check whether these conditions are satisfied or not.  If so, we
take i_data_sem and release i_mutex lock directly.  Meanwhile iocb->private is
set to indicate that this is a dio overwrite, and it will be handled in
ext4_ext_direct_IO.
