FWIW this is a change of behaviour; for some reason the code used to
loop back to grab_cache_page_write_begin() and bail out on
PageUptodate() I suppose; some sort of race check?
The whole pattern is a bit weird to me and 9p has no guarantee on
concurrent writes to a file with cache enabled (except that it will
corrupt something), so this part is fine with me.

What I'm curious about is the page used to be both unlocked and put, but
now isn't either and the return value hasn't changed for the caller to
make a difference on write_begin / I don't see any code change in the
vfs to handle that.
What did I miss?

(FWIW at least cifs in the series has the same pattern change; didn't
check all of them)
