Subject[PATCH 13/14] staging/lustre/llite: do not clear uptodate bit in page delete
Date
From: Jinshan Xiong <jinshan.xiong@intel.com>

Otherwise, if the race between page fault and truncate occurs, it
will cause the page fault routine to return an EIO error.

In filemap_fault() {
page_not_uptodate:
...
ClearPageError(page);
error = mapping->a_ops->readpage(file, page);
if (!error) {
wait_on_page_locked(page);
if (!PageUptodate(page))
error = -EIO;
}
...
}

However, I tend to think this is a defect in kernel implementation,
because it assumes PageUptodate shouldn't be cleared but file read
routine doesn't make the same assumption.
