ext4: fix a potential fiemap/page fault deadlock w/ inline_data
The ext4_inline_data_fiemap() function calls fiemap_fill_next_extent() while still holding the xattr semaphore. This is not necessary and it triggers a circular lockdep warning. This is because fiemap_fill_next_extent() could trigger a page fault when it writes into page which triggers a page fault. If that page is mmaped from the inline file in question, this could very well result in a deadlock. This problem can be reproduced using generic/519 with a file system configuration which has the inline_data feature enabled. Signed-off-by: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu> Cc: stable@kernel.org
