I'm kind of surprised that the callers wouldn't want to hold that lock
over a call to this function.  I guess you're working on the callers,
so you'd know better than I would, but I would have used lockdep to
assert that invalidate_lock was held.

Is this optimisation worth it?  We're already doing some expensive
operations here, does saving cycling the i_mmap_lock really help
anything?  You'll note that unmap_mapping_pages() already does this
check inside the lock.
