XFS seems to be buggered as well:
/* DIO must be aligned to device logical sector size */
if ((pos | count) & target->bt_logical_sectormask)
return -EINVAL;

/* "unaligned" here means not aligned to a filesystem block */
if ((pos & mp->m_blockmask) || ((pos + count) & mp->m_blockmask))
unaligned_io = 1;
ret = xfs_file_aio_write_checks(file, &pos, &count, &iolock);

now, play with rlimit() and suddenly the alignment checks above have nothing
to do with what'll actually happen after that sucker - it's calling
generic_write_checks(), so...

Incidentally, we want the result of alignment check to decide how to take
the lock that protects the file size, so simply lifting O_APPEND treatment
above those won't do. I suspect that in case of lock taken shared we
need to redo alignment checks and treat "it became unaligned" as "unlock
and redo it with lock taken exclusive".

BTW, xfs_break_layouts() having dropped and regained lock would invalidate
the O_APPEND treatment in generic_write_checks() just prior (both in

Al "really not fond of xfs_rw_ilock()" Viro...
