3.13.11.8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dave Chinner <dchinner at redhat.com>

commit 834ffca6f7e345a79f6f2e2d131b0dfba8a4b67a upstream.

Similar to direct IO reads, direct IO writes are using
truncate_pagecache_range to invalidate the page cache. This is
incorrect due to the sub-block zeroing in the page cache that
truncate_pagecache_range() triggers.

This patch fixes things by using invalidate_inode_pages2_range
instead.  It preserves the page cache invalidation, but won't zero
any pages.
