make sure data is on disk before calling ->write_inode

Similar to the fsync issue fixed a while ago in commit
2daea67e we need to write for data to
actually hit the disk before writing out the metadata to guarantee
data integrity for filesystems that modify the inode in the data I/O
completion path.  Currently XFS and NFS handle this manually, and AFS
has a write_inode method that does nothing but waiting for data, while
others are possibly missing out on this.

Fortunately this change has a lot less impact than the fsync change
as none of the write_inode methods starts data writeout of any form
by itself.
