fuse: fix fallocate vs. ftruncate race

A former patch introducing FUSE_I_SIZE_UNSTABLE flag provided detailed
description of races between ftruncate and anyone who can extend i_size:

> 1. As in the previous scenario fuse_dentry_revalidate() discovered that i_size
> changed (due to our own fuse_do_setattr()) and is going to call
> truncate_pagecache() for some  'new_size' it believes valid right now. But by
> the time that particular truncate_pagecache() is called ...
> 2. fuse_do_setattr() returns (either having called truncate_pagecache() or
> not -- it doesn't matter).
> 3. The file is extended either by write(2) or ftruncate(2) or fallocate(2).
> 4. mmap-ed write makes a page in the extended region dirty.

This patch adds necessary bits to fuse_file_fallocate() to protect from that
