[CIFS] Send SMB flush in cifs_fsync
In contrast to the now-obsolete smbfs, cifs does not send SMB_COM_FLUSH in response to an explicit fsync(2) to guarantee that all volatile data is written to stable storage on the server side, provided the server honors the request (which, to my knowledge, is true for Windows and Samba with 'strict sync' enabled). This patch modifies the cifs_fsync implementation to restore the fsync-behavior of smbfs by triggering SMB_COM_FLUSH after sending outstanding data on the client side to the server.
