OK, so re-reading your mail, I think you meant to just factor out
everything except the filemap_write_and_wait_range.  Here are a couple
of patches which do that.  Also, since we're not worried about blocking
in the endio processing, just making things synchronous makes the code a
lot simpler.  Let me know what you think of the attached two patches
(which I've already run through xfstests).

Thanks!

xfs: factor out everything but the filemap_write_and_wait from xfs_file_fsync

Hi,

Fsyncing is tricky business, so factor out the bits of the xfs_file_fsync
function that can be used from the I/O post-processing path.

xfs: honor the O_SYNC flag for aysnchronous direct I/O requests

Hi,

If a file is opened with O_SYNC|O_DIRECT, the drive cache does not get
flushed after the write completion for AIOs.  This patch attempts to fix
that problem by marking an I/O as requiring a cache flush in endio
processing, and then issuing the cache flush after any unwritten extent
conversion is done.

Dave, ping?  Did you have a chance to take a look at these patches?

Cheers,
