mark_inode_dirty_sync() grabs the same inode lock!

race conditions between holding the lock in pnfs_set_layoutcommit() and in
mark_inode_dirty_sync() can result in a second call to pnfs_layoutcommit_inode(), but
this will be a noop as NFS_INO_LAYOUTCOMMIT won't be set in the second call

I'm missing a "Signed-off-by:" here.

Strictly speaking, an 'int' does not take values in the set 'true' and
'false'.

Otherwise this looks fine. Please correct and resend.
