ext3: fix broken handling of EXT3_STATE_NEW
Linus Torvalds [Mon, 29 Mar 2010 21:30:19 +0000 (14:30 -0700)]
In commit 9df93939b735 ("ext3: Use bitops to read/modify
EXT3_I(inode)->i_state") ext3 changed its internal 'i_state' variable to
use bitops for its state handling.  However, unline the same ext4
change, it didn't actually change the name of the field when it changed
the semantics of it.

As a result, an old use of 'i_state' remained in fs/ext3/ialloc.c that
initialized the field to EXT3_STATE_NEW.  And that does not work
_at_all_ when we're now working with individually named bits rather than
values that get masked.  So the code tried to mark the state to be new,
but in actual fact set the field to EXT3_STATE_JDATA.  Which makes no
sense at all, and screws up all the code that checks whether the inode
was newly allocated.

In particular, it made the xattr code unhappy, and caused various random
behavior, like apparently

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=577911

So fix the initialization, and rename the field to match ext4 so that we
don't have this happen again.
