Fix race in create_empty_buffers() vs __set_page_dirty_buffers()
Nick Piggin noticed this (very unlikely) race between setting a page dirty and creating the buffers for it - we need to hold the mapping private_lock until we've set the page dirty bit in order to make sure that create_empty_buffers() might not build up a set of buffers without the dirty bits set when the page is dirty. I doubt anybody has ever hit this race (and it didn't solve the issue Nick was looking at), but as Nick says: "Still, it does appear to solve a real race, which we should close."
