Lukas Czerner - Aug. 31, 2012, 10:21 p.m.
This commit changes truncate_inode_pages_range() so it can handle non
page aligned regions of the truncate. Currently we can hit BUG_ON when
the end of the range is not page aligned, but we can handle unaligned
start of the range.

Being able to handle non page aligned regions of the page can help file
system punch_hole implementations and save some work, because once we're
holding the page we might as well deal with it right away.

In order for this to work correctly, called must register
invalidatepage_range address space operation, or rely solely on the
block_invalidatepage_range. That said it will BUG_ON() if caller
implements invalidatepage(), does not implement invalidatepage_range()
and use truncate_inode_pages_range() with unaligned end of the range.

This was based on the code provided by Hugh Dickins with some small
changes to make use of do_invalidatepage_range().
