Thank you for your response!

In this case, direct write finish while page do not exist in the page
cache. This is the fundamental condition of the race, because readahead
won't allocate page if page exist in page cache.

By the way, in the current logic, if page exist in page cache, direct
write need to hold lock for page in invalidate_inode_pages2_range().

Thanks!
