Subject: [patch 013/158] mm/filemap.c: warn if stale pagecache is left after direct write
Date: Sat, 30 Nov 2019 17:49:47 -0800
Message-ID: <20191201014947.ru2upF2br%akpm@linux-foundation.org> (raw)

From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@yandex-team.ru>
Subject: mm/filemap.c: warn if stale pagecache is left after direct write

generic_file_direct_write() tries to invalidate pagecache after O_DIRECT
write.  Unlike to similar code in dio_complete() this silently ignores
error returned from invalidate_inode_pages2_range().

According to comment this code here because not all filesystems call
dio_complete() to do proper invalidation after O_DIRECT write.  Noticeable
example is a blkdev_direct_IO().

This patch calls dio_warn_stale_pagecache() if invalidation fails.
