    xfs: improve ioend error handling
    
    Return unwritten extent conversion errors to aio_complete.
    
    Skip both unwritten extent conversion and size updates if we had an
    I/O error or the filesystem has been shut down.
    
    Return -EIO to the aio/buffer completion handlers in case of a
    forced shutdown.

commit 05d3202e28eb437a185d6c56fbf8fa8e1f638e6e

    xfs: avoid direct I/O write vs buffered I/O race
    
    Currently a buffered reader or writer can add pages to the pagecache
    while we are waiting for the iolock in xfs_file_dio_aio_write.  Prevent
    this by re-checking mapping->nrpages after we got the iolock, and if
    nessecary upgrade the lock to exclusive mode.  To simplify this a bit
    only take the ilock inside of xfs_file_aio_write_checks.

commit b73d8f7667aa82ece204a9a2e5467b54a8ecd059

    xfs: avoid synchronous transactions when deleting attr blocks
    
    Currently xfs_attr_inactive causes a synchronous transactions if we are
    removing a file that has any extents allocated to the attribute fork, and
    thus makes XFS extremely slow at removing files with out of line extended
    attributes. The code looks a like a relict from the days before the busy
    extent list, but with the busy extent list we avoid reusing data and attr
    extents that have been freed but not commited yet, so this code is just
    as superflous as the synchronous transactions for data blocks.
