Subject: [GIT PULL] iomap: new code for 5.10-rc1

Hi Linus,

Please pull these new changes to the iomap code for 5.10.  There's not a
lot of new stuff going on here -- a little bit of code refactoring to
make iomap workable with btrfs' fsync locking model, cleanups in
preparation for adding THP support for filesystems, and fixing a data
corruption issue for blocksize < pagesize filesystems.

The branch merges cleanly with your HEAD branch as of a few minutes ago.
Please let me know if there are any strange problems.  It's been a
pretty quiet cycle, so I don't anticipate any more iomap pulls other
than whatever new bug fixes show up.

  iomap: Call inode_dio_end() before generic_write_sync() (2020-09-28 08:51:08 -0700)

New code for 5.10:
- Don't WARN_ON weird states that unprivileged users can create.
- Don't invalidate page cache when direct writes want to fall back to
- Fix some problems when readahead ios fail.
- Fix a problem where inline data pages weren't getting flushed during
  an unshare operation.
- Rework iomap to support arbitrarily many blocks per page in
  preparation to support THP for the page cache.
- Fix a bug in the blocksize < pagesize buffered io path where we could
  fail to initialize the many-blocks-per-page uptodate bitmap correctly
  when the backing page is actually up to date.  This could cause us to
  forget to write out dirty pages.
- Split out the generic_write_sync at the end of the directio write path
  so that btrfs can drop the inode lock before sync'ing the file.
- Call inode_dio_end before trying to sync the file after a O_DSYNC
  direct write (instead of afterwards) to match the behavior of the
  old directio code.
