I don't see that but I'll take your word for it...  That is unfortunate because
I would have thought that the full page would have been zero'ed by something
already.

I found code in xfs_free_file_space() with this comment:

        /*
         * If we zeroed right up to EOF and EOF straddles a page boundary we
         * must make sure that the post-EOF area is also zeroed because the
         * page could be mmap'd and iomap_zero_range doesn't do that for us.
         * Writeback of the eof page will do this, albeit clumsily.
         */

But that just calls filemap_write_and_wait_range()...  :-/

I thought I did...

What I have done is take this patch:

https://www.spinics.net/lists/fstests/msg13313.html

and put [run_fsx ""] in a loop... (diff below) And without this truncate fix
patch it was failing in about 5 - 10 iterations.  But I'm running it right now
and it has gone for 30+...  :-(

I am 90% confident that this series works for 100% of the use cases we have.  I
think this is an existing bug which I've just managed to find.  And again I'm
not comfortable with this patch either.  So I'm not trying to argue for it but
I just don't know what could be wrong...
