Hmm, does this have unintended behavior changes?

I notice that there are some checks for flags "IS_APPEND(inode) ||
IS_IMMUTABLE(inode)" *before* the call to ext4_set_inode_flags(). I
didn't look too much deeper at whether those checks are bogus, but it
would seem safer to do something like this for a lower risk fix.

Thoughts?
