[Cluster-devel] [PATCH v5 12/12] gfs2: Fix mmap + page fault deadlocks for direct I/O

Also disable page faults during direct I/O requests and implement the same
kind of retry logic as in the buffered I/O case.

Direct I/O requests differ from buffered I/O requests in that they use
bio_iov_iter_get_pages for grabbing page references and faulting in pages
instead of triggering physical page faults.  Those manual page faults can be
disabled with the new iocb->noio flag.
