Hmm, truncate_pagecache() is for truncating the mm/vm part of the
pagecache. vmtruncate should still call inode->i_op->truncate() to
trim blocks if required.

However I'd say we do still need to ensure do_invalidatepage is
called for the page, for private metadata. So yes I think your patch
looks good.

Acked-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@...e.de>

Please apply to mainline and 2.6.32.
