iomap_zero_range uses the standard iomap_write_{begin,end} functions,
which means that if you pass it an (offset, length) that extend beyond
EOF it will change isize to offset+length.

Hmm, that implies the invalidation didn't work.  Can you find a way to
report the contents of the page cache after the dax mode change
invalidation fails?  I wonder if this is something dorky like rounding
down such that the EOF page doesn't actually get invalidated?

Hmm, no, xfs_ioctl_setattr_dax_invalidate should be nuking all the
pages... do you have a quick reproducer?
