Do you mean add a comment instead of the !f2fs_verity_in_progress() check, or in
addition to it?  ->write_begin(), ->writepages(), and ->write_end() are all
supposed to ignore i_size when verity is in progress, so I don't think this
particular part should be different, even if technically it's still correct to
truncate twice.  Also, ext4 needs this check in its ->write_begin() for locking
reasons; we should keep f2fs similar.

How about having both a comment and the check, like:

        /* In the fs-verity case, f2fs_end_enable_verity() does the truncate */
        if (to > i_size && !f2fs_verity_in_progress(inode)) {
