Sorry - I was thinking vmtruncate(). truncate_inode_pages() would
result in all the mmapped pages becoming out-of-date anonymous
memory. NFS needs to take down the pagetables so that processes
which are mmapping the file which changed on the server will take
a major fault and read a fresh copy. I believe.
