ext4: atomically set inode->i_flags in ext4_set_inode_flags()
commit 00a1a053ebe5febcfc2ec498bd894f035ad2aa06 upstream. Use cmpxchg() to atomically set i_flags instead of clearing out the S_IMMUTABLE, S_APPEND, etc. flags and then setting them from the EXT4_IMMUTABLE_FL, EXT4_APPEND_FL flags, since this opens up a race where an immutable file has the immutable flag cleared for a brief window of time.
