[PATCH] holepunch: fix shmem_truncate_range punching too far

Miklos Szeredi observes BUG_ON(!entry) in shmem_writepage() triggered in rare
circumstances, because shmem_truncate_range() erroneously removes partially
truncated directory pages at the end of the range: later reclaim on pages
pointing to these removed directories triggers the BUG.  Indeed, and it can
also cause data loss beyond the hole.

Fix this as in the patch proposed by Miklos, but distinguish between "limit"
(how far we need to search: ignore truncation's next_index optimization in the
holepunch case - if there are races it's more consistent to act on the whole
range specified) and "upper_limit" (how far we can free directory pages:
generally we must be careful to keep partially punched pages, but can relax at
end of file - i_size being held stable by i_mutex).
