ext4: punch_hole should wait for DIO writers



punch_hole is the place where we have to wait for all existing writers
(writeback, aio, dio), but currently we simply flush pended end_io request
which is not sufficient. Other issue is that punch_hole performed w/o i_mutex
held which obviously result in dangerous data corruption due to
write-after-free.

This patch performs following changes:
- Guard punch_hole with i_mutex
- Recheck inode flags under i_mutex
- Block all new dio readers in order to prevent information leak caused by
  read-after-free pattern.
- punch_hole now wait for all writers in flight
  NOTE: XXX write-after-free race is still possible because new dirty pages
  may appear due to mmap(), and currently there is no easy way to stop
  writeback while punch_hole is in progress.

[ Fixed error return from ext4_ext_punch_hole() to make sure that we
  release i_mutex before returning EPERM or ETXTBUSY -- Ted ]
