Do we even need to invalidate the page cache for this? i.e. we've
cleaned the pages so that any new write to them will fault,
that will see the immutable flag via ->page_mkwrite and then the
app should segv, right?

Doesn't wait for direct IO to drain. Wouldn't it be better to do
this?

	lock()
	xfs_flush_unmap_range(ip, 0, XFS_SIZE(ip));
	unlock()

Otherwise looks ok.
