ext4: fix deadlock in journal_unmap_buffer()
We cannot wait for transaction commit in journal_unmap_buffer() because we hold page lock which ranks below transaction start. We solve the issue by bailing out of journal_unmap_buffer() and jbd2_journal_invalidatepage() with -EBUSY. Caller is then responsible for waiting for transaction commit to finish and try invalidation again. Since the issue can happen only for page stradding i_size, it is simple enough to manually call jbd2_journal_invalidatepage() for such page from ext4_setattr(), check the return value and wait if necessary.
