How about just leaving that special code in place? It bypasses page
refs and directly copies to the kernel buffer, so it should not have
any affect on the user page code.

Here's one:
# uncomment as appropriate:
#sudo dnf install fuse3-devel
#sudo apt install libfuse3-dev

cat <<EOF > fuse-dio-exec.c
#define FUSE_USE_VERSION 31
#include <fuse.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <unistd.h>

static const char *filename = "/bin/true";

static int test_getattr(const char *path, struct stat *stbuf,
struct fuse_file_info *fi)
{
return lstat(filename, stbuf) == -1 ? -errno : 0;
}

static int test_open(const char *path, struct fuse_file_info *fi)
{
int res;

res = open(filename, fi->flags);
if (res == -1)
return -errno;

fi->fh = res;
fi->direct_io = 1;
return 0;
}

static int test_read(const char *path, char *buf, size_t size, off_t offset,
struct fuse_file_info *fi)
{
int res = pread(fi->fh, buf, size, offset);
return res == -1 ? -errno : res;
}

static int test_release(const char *path, struct fuse_file_info *fi)
{
close(fi->fh);
return 0;
}

static const struct fuse_operations test_oper = {
.getattr = test_getattr,
.open = test_open,
.release = test_release,
.read = test_read,
};

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
return fuse_main(argc, argv, &test_oper, NULL);
}
EOF

gcc -W fuse-dio-exec.c `pkg-config fuse3 --cflags --libs` -o fuse-dio-exec
touch /tmp/true

#run test:
./fuse-dio-exec /tmp/true
/tmp/true
umount /tmp/true
