direct I/O fallback sync simplification
Christoph Hellwig [Wed, 23 Sep 2009 13:07:30 +0000 (15:07 +0200)]
In the case of direct I/O falling back to buffered I/O we sync data
twice currently: once at the end of generic_file_buffered_write using
filemap_write_and_wait_range and once a little later in
__generic_file_aio_write using do_sync_mapping_range with all flags set.

The wait before write of the do_sync_mapping_range call does not make
any sense, so just keep the filemap_write_and_wait_range call and move
it to the right spot.
