udf: fix possible leakage of blocks
We have to take care that when we call udf_discard_prealloc() from udf_clear_inode() we have to write inode ourselves afterwards (otherwise, some changes might be lost leading to leakage of blocks, use of free blocks or improperly aligned extents). Also udf_discard_prealloc() does two different things - it removes preallocated blocks and truncates the last extent to exactly match i_size. We move the latter functionality to udf_truncate_tail_extent(), call udf_discard_prealloc() when last reference to a file is dropped and call udf_truncate_tail_extent() when inode is being removed from inode cache (udf_clear_inode() call). We cannot call udf_truncate_tail_extent() earlier as subsequent open+write would find the last block of the file mapped and happily write to the end of it, although the last extent says it's shorter.
