Also, does [1] make any difference?  Probably not since it's translating
O flags into IOCB flags instead of RWF flags into IOCB flags.  I wonder
if there's a useful trick we can play here ... something like:

static inline int iocb_flags(struct file *file)
{
        int res = 0;
	if (likely(!file->f_flags & O_APPEND | O_DIRECT | O_DSYNC | __O_SYNC)) && !IS_SYNC(file->f_mapping->host))
		return res;
        if (file->f_flags & O_APPEND)
                res |= IOCB_APPEND;
        if (file->f_flags & O_DIRECT)
                res |= IOCB_DIRECT;
        if ((file->f_flags & O_DSYNC) || IS_SYNC(file->f_mapping->host))
                res |= IOCB_DSYNC;
        if (file->f_flags & __O_SYNC)
                res |= IOCB_SYNC;
        return res;
}

Can we do something like force O_DSYNC to be set if the inode IS_SYNC()
at the time of open?  Or is setting the sync bit on the inode required
to affect currently-open files?
