Description Abhijith Das 2010-05-03 12:04:45 EDT
The call to mark_buffer_dirty() should be conditional upon it not being a journaled data file. The code in gfs2_block_truncate_page() is copied largely into gfs2_adjust_quota() and this bug was discovered and corrected there in through the patch for bug 555754.

This needs to be fixed here as well.

Comment 2 Steve Whitehouse 2010-05-26 05:18:30 EDT
Actually this is correct as it is. Its rather confusing due to the different way in which we treat data and metadata in the journal. Our writepages for jdata knows how to do the right thing, and if we don't mark it dirty then writepages won't ever get called on that page.

Sorry for the confusion.
