When the filesystem is created without a journal, we eventually call
into __generic_file_fsync() in order to write out all the modified
in-core data to the permanent storage device. This function happens to
try and obtain an inode_lock() while synchronizing the files buffer
and it's associated metadata.

Generally, this is fine, however it becomes a problem when there is
higher level code that has already obtained an inode_lock() as this
leads to a recursive lock situation. This case is especially true when
porting across direct I/O to iomap infrastructure as we obtain an
inode_lock() early on in the I/O within ext4_dio_write_iter() and hold
it until the I/O has been completed. Consequently, to not run into
this specific issue, we move away from calling into
__generic_file_fsync() and perform the necessary synchronization tasks
within ext4_sync_file().
