Jan Kara - Sept. 3, 2012, 4:04 p.m.
Code tracking when transaction needs to be committed on fdatasync(2) forgets
to handle a situation when only inode's i_size is changed. Thus in such
situations fdatasync(2) doesn't force transaction with new i_size to disk
and that can result in wrong i_size after a crash.

Fix the issue by updating inode's i_datasync_tid whenever its size is
updated.

 I'll push this to Linus and -stable soon if xfstests pass and noone
objects.
