Subject[PATCH v4 01/12] ext4: allow DAX writeback for hole punch
Date
Currently when doing a DAX hole punch with ext4 we fail to do a writeback.
This is because the logic around filemap_write_and_wait_range() in
ext4_punch_hole() only looks for dirty page cache pages in the radix tree,
not for dirty DAX exceptional entries.
