I agree with your rationale, but I hate how this code ends up
looking.  In many ways iomap_write_end seems like the wrong
place to update the inode size anyway.  I've not done a deep
analysis, but I think there shouldn't really be any major blocker
to only setting IOMAP_F_SIZE_CHANGED in iomap_write_end, and then
move updating i_size and calling pagecache_isize_extended to
iomap_write_iter.
