[PATCH 1/2] GFS2: Clear dirty bit at end of inode glock sync

From: Steven Whitehouse
Date: Tue Apr 21 2009 - 05:14:58 EST

The dirty bit can get set during the inode glock sync. Its too
complicated to change that at the moment, so this is the quick
fix - to clear the bit again at the end of the function.
