    afs: Set DWriting when truncating a dcache entry
    When we truncate a file, we truncate the contents of the relevant
    dcache entry chunks, and prevent future FetchData operations from
    fetching data beyond the truncation offset. If we never write anything
    to that chunk, we never set DWriting, and so on disk it looks like
    that dcache entry has valid data for the specified DV. However, since
    the data is truncated, this is not true.
    If a process holds a file open, truncates it without writing to it,
    and then the client crashes (or we have trouble contacting the
    fileserver when we close the file), the dcache entry will appear valid
    on disk. So the next time we read the dcache entry, we will use the
    incorrect cache contents as if they were accurate for the specified
    To avoid this, set DWriting when we truncate a chunk. Normally we only
    clear DWriting when we actually send data to the fileserver, so to
    clear DWriting in this case, add an additional line to clear it in
    afs_StoreAllSegments, after the StoreMini has completed.
