Looking at the reproducer, this is the issue we have been speaking about at
LSF/MM - direct IO read dirties pages after writeback has written them out
and so we don't expect them to be dirtied. If someone told me I would not
believe this is possible to hit by fuzzing ;) Good job from the syzkaller
guys!
