Series fs: Hole punch vs page cache filling races | expand

Hole puching currently evicts pages from page cache and then goes on to
remove blocks from the inode. This happens under both i_mmap_sem and
i_rwsem held exclusively which provides appropriate serialization with
racing page faults. However there is currently nothing that prevents
ordinary read(2) from racing with the hole punch and instantiating page
cache page after hole punching has evicted page cache but before it has
removed blocks from the inode. This page cache page will be mapping soon
to be freed block and that can lead to returning stale data to userspace
or even filesystem corruption.

Fix the problem by protecting reads as well as readahead requests with
i_mmap_sem.
