Subject: [PATCH] ext4: race-condition protection for
 ext4_convert_unwritten_extents_endio

commit dee1f973ca341c266229faa5a1a5bb268bed3531 upstream.

We assumed that at the time we call ext4_convert_unwritten_extents_endio()
extent in question is fully inside [map.m_lblk, map->m_len] because
it was already split during submission.  But this may not be true due to
a race between writeback vs fallocate.

If extent in question is larger than requested we will split it again.
Special precautions should being done if zeroout required because
[map.m_lblk, map->m_len] already contains valid data.
