Default Fix problems relating to execution of files on GFS2

From: Steven Whitehouse <swhiteho@redhat.com>

This patch fixes a couple of problems which affected the execution of files
on GFS2. The first is that there was a corner case where inodes were not
always uptodate at the point at which permissions checks were being carried
out, this was resulting in refusal of execute permission, but only on the
first lookup, subsequent requests worked correctly. The second was a problem
relating to incorrect updating of file sizes which was introduced with the
write_begin/end code for GFS2 a little while back.
