commit 86c4f6d85595cd7da635dc6985d27bfa43b1ae10 upstream.

When make_indexed_dir() fails (e.g. because of ENOSPC) after it has allocated
block for index tree root, we did not properly mark all changed buffers dirty.
This lead to only some of these buffers being written out and thus effectively
corrupting the directory.

Fix the issue by marking all changed data dirty even in the error failure case.
