From: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com>

If an application wants to do direct IO and opens a file with O_DIRECT
in guest, that does not necessarily mean that we need to bypass page
cache on host as well. So reset this flag on host.

If somebody needs to bypass page cache on host as well (and it is safe to
do so), we can add a knob in daemon later to control this behavior.

I check virtio-9p and they do reset O_DIRECT flag.
