overlayfs syncs all inode pages on sync_filesystem(), but it also
needs to call s_op->sync_fs() of upper fs for metadata sync.

This fixes correctness of syncfs(2) as demonstrated by following
xfs specific test:

xfs_sync_stats()
{
	echo $1
	echo -n "xfs_log_force = "
	grep log /proc/fs/xfs/stat  | awk '{ print $5 }'
}

xfs_sync_stats "before touch"
touch x
xfs_sync_stats "after touch"
xfs_io -c syncfs .
xfs_sync_stats "after syncfs"
xfs_io -c fsync x
xfs_sync_stats "after fsync"
xfs_io -c fsync x
xfs_sync_stats "after fsync #2"

When this test is run in overlay mount over xfs, log force
count does not increase with syncfs command.
