md: fix loading of out-of-date bitmap.
NeilBrown [Thu, 7 May 2009 02:47:19 +0000 (12:47 +1000)]
When md is loading a bitmap which it knows is out of date, it fills
each page with 1s and writes it back out again.  However the
write_page call makes used of bitmap->file_pages and
bitmap->last_page_size which haven't been set correctly yet.  So this
can sometimes fail.

Move the setting of file_pages and last_page_size to before the call
to write_page.

This bug can cause the assembly on an array to fail, thus making the
data inaccessible.  Hence I think it is a suitable candidate for
-stable.
