    Just curious... would it make sense to call truncate_inode_pages()
    to purge the the readdir cache? Meaning, in nfs_revalidate_mapping()
    truncate_inode_pages() would be called for S_ISDIR inodes?

    It seems to me that it would be more of a decisive why to ensure
    the readdir cache is purged...
