Btrfs: fix abnormal long waiting in fsync
xfstests generic/127 detected this problem. With commit 7fc34a62ca4434a79c68e23e70ed26111b7a4cf8, now fsync will only flush data within the passed range. This is the cause of the above problem, -- btrfs's fsync has a stage called 'sync log' which will wait for all the ordered extents it've recorded to finish. In xfstests/generic/127, with mixed operations such as truncate, fallocate, punch hole, and mapwrite, we get some pre-allocated extents, and mapwrite will mmap, and then msync. And I find that msync will wait for quite a long time (about 20s in my case), thanks to ftrace, it turns out that the previous fallocate calls 'btrfs_wait_ordered_range()' to flush dirty pages, but as the range of dirty pages may be larger than 'btrfs_wait_ordered_range()' wants, there can be some ordered extents created but not getting corresponding pages flushed, then they're left in memory until we fsync which runs into the stage 'sync log', and fsync will just wait for the system writeback thread to flush those pages and get ordered extents finished, so the latency is inevitable. This adds a flush similar to btrfs_start_ordered_extent() in btrfs_wait_logged_extents() to fix that.
