2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

(cherry picked from commit 791b7f08954869d7b8ff438f3dac3cfb39778297)

When iterating through the pages which have mapped buffer_heads, we
failed to update the b_state value. This results in allocating blocks
at logical offset 0.
