->direct_IO is just a helper for ->read_iter and ->write_iter, so please
don't call it directly.  It actually is slowly on its way out, with at
at least all of the iomap implementations not using it, as well as various
other file systems.

for the synchronous case we could avoid this allocation and just use
arguments on stack.
