You're right, I have made a mistake that I have not considered the 'mmap' case,
Thank you for reminding me about that. :)

Agreed, valid data within i_size will be copied to ICB cache when we writeback
the page by invoking udf_adinicb_writepage, so the copy in udf_adinicb_write_end
is redundant. So our patch should be modified like the following one, is this right?
