Subject: [PATCH 4.9 19/32] direct-io: allow direct writes to empty inodes

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 8b9433eb4de3c26a9226c981c283f9f4896ae030 ]

On a DIO_SKIP_HOLES filesystem, the ->get_block() method is currently
not allowed to create blocks for an empty inode.  This confusion comes
from trying to bit shift a negative number, so check the size of the
inode first.

The problem is most visible for hfsplus, because the fallback to
buffered I/O doesn't happen and the write fails with EIO.  This is in
part the fault of the module, because it gives a wrong return value on
->get_block(); that will be fixed in a separate patch.
