This seems kinda messy. filemap_fault() basically takes the
invalidate lock around the entire operation, it runs, so maybe it
would be cleaner to implement it as:

filemap_fault_locked(vmf)
{
	/* does the filemap fault work */
}

filemap_fault(vmf)
{
	filemap_invalidate_down_read(...)
	ret = filemap_fault_locked(vmf)
	filemap_invalidate_up_read(...)
	return ret;
}

And that means XFS could just call filemap_fault_locked() and not 
have to do all this messy locking just to avoid holding the lock
that filemap_fault has now internalised.

<sigh>

And so here we are again, losing more of our read vs write debug
checks on debug kernels when lockdep is not enabled....

Can we please add rwsem_is_locked_read() and rwsem_is_locked_write()
wrappers that just look at the rwsem counter value to determine how
the lock is held? Then the mrlock_t can go away entirely....

Cheers,

Dave.
