Subject: [RFC 1/7] iomap: Don't fall back to bufferred write if the write is atomic

Currently, iomap only supports atomic writes for direct IOs and there is
no guarantees that a bufferred IO will be atomic. Hence, if the user has
explicitly requested the direct write to be atomic and there's a
failure, return -EIO instead of falling back to bufferred IO.
