Failing to invalid the page cache means data in incoherent, which is
a very bad state for the system.  Always fall back to buffered I/O
through the page cache if we can't invalidate mappings.

Is that the right approach though?  I don't have a full picture in my head,
but wouldn't we be better off marking these pages as !Uptodate and doing
the direct I/O?

Thanks. This will help btrfs. The current next tree contains the iomap
changes I recomended and would need to be reverted in order to
incorporate this. Once this is in the next tree I will (re)format the
btrfs iomap dio patches.

-ENOTBLK is already being used as a "magic" return code that means
"retry this direct write as a buffered write".  Shouldn't we use that
instead?

-EREMCHG was a private hack we put in XFS for the one case where a
direct write had to be done through the page cache (non block-aligned
COW), but maybe it's time we put that to rest since the rest of the
world apparently thinks the magic fallback code is -ENOTBLK.

Patches in next don't need to be reverted, if you put together a branch
with any iomap or other prep patches + btrfs iomap-dio I'll replace it
in the for-next snapshot I push.

I am wondering if it is OK to unconditionally always return -EREMCHG here.
Shouldn't this depend on the return code of invalidate_inode_pages2_range() ?
ret may be the value returned by mapping->a_ops->launder_page(page) instead of
-EBUSY that invalidate_inode_pages2_range() otherwise returns for a failed
invalidation. Isn't their any error condition that would be better served by not
forcing the fallback to buffered write ? E.g. -ENOMEM ?

This looks fine. This would happen only for conventional zone writes since
sequential zone writes cannot ever issue direct IOs on top of cached data as
that would be a forbidden "overwrite" operation.

Isn't that a problem if e.g. pages are mapped into userspace and mlocked?
