kernel - Fix issue in UFS related to new nvtruncbuf() API use
* When a UFS truncation must downsize a block it must sometimes call
FSYNC twice, the second time to flush out softdep block dependencies
related to the original indirect block.
UFS depends on the first FSYNC call to prevent the buffer cache buffer
straddling the new file/directory EOF from becoming dirty. However,
nvtruncbuf() defeats this by re-dirtying the bp.
The solution is to simply undirty the bp prior to the second FSYNC,
which works fine since it will be written out later with a b*write()
* Fixes 'locking against myself' panic w/UFS.
