ext3: fix synchronization of quota files in journal=data mode
Jan Kara [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:16 +0000 (01:46 -0700)]
In journal=data mode, it is not enough to do write_inode_now as done in
vfs_quota_on() to write all data to their final location (which is needed for
quota_read to work correctly).  Calling journal_flush() does its job.
