I'm at LCA and been having laptop dramas so the fix is being held up at this
point. I and trying to test a change right now that adds an optional unmap
to truncate_inode_pages_range as XFS needs, in some circumstances, to toss
out dirty pages (with dirty bufferheads) and hence requires truncate semantics
that are currently missing unmap calls.

Semi-untested patch attached below.

Cheers,

Dave.
