Yes.

We have the following comment near the end of xfs_writepage_map:

	/*
	 * We can end up here with no error and nothing to write if we
	 * race with a partial page truncate on a sub-page block sized
	 * filesystem. In that case we need to mark the page clean.
	 */

And I'm pretty sure I managed to hit that case easily in xfstests,
as my initial handling of it was wrong.  So I don't think we can
even check for that.

I don't think it's worth it.  The sub-page dirty tracking has been one
of the issues with the buffer head code that caused a lot of problems,
and that we want to get rid of.
