Creating an xattr is an independent journal transaction and the xattr
code assumes that there is always a valid host inode present when a new
xattr is created. This assumption is not correct for LSM and now
fscrypt, for these users UBIFS creates the xattr before the host inode
is created and visible to the user. Since these are two journal
transactions it can happen that due to a power-cut only the xattr is
present but not the host inode nor the directory entry for it. As result
of this UBIFS will lose free space and can run out of space at some
time.
It is also not possible to create the xattr after the host inode because
this would violate LSM and fscrypt model. After a power-cut we could end
up with a inode without security context.

This is an intermediate fix that can go into -stable, as long term
solution we have to make sure that creating the xattr and the host inode
is a single journal transaction. But to achieve this the journal code
need some rework first.
