Subject: [PATCH 4/6] iomap: complete partial direct I/O writes synchronously

From: Andreas Gruenbacher <agruenba@...hat.com>

According to xfstest generic/240, applications seem to expect direct I/O
writes to either complete as a whole or to fail; short direct I/O writes
are apparently not appreciated.  This means that when only part of an
asynchronous direct I/O write succeeds, we can either fail the entire
write, or we can wait for the partial write to complete and retry the
remaining write as buffered I/O.  The old __blockdev_direct_IO helper
has code for waiting for partial writes to complete; the new
iomap_dio_rw iomap helper does not.

The above mentioned fallback mode is needed for gfs2, which doesn't
allow block allocations under direct I/O to avoid taking cluster-wide
exclusive locks.  As a consequence, an asynchronous direct I/O write to
a file range that contains a hole will result in a short write.  In that
case, wait for the short write to complete to allow gfs2 to recover.
