    Hmmm... any chance this could be split into a sys_sync_file_range and
    a vfs_sync_file_range which takes a 'struct file*' and does less (or
    no) sanity checking, so I can call it from nfsd?

    Currently I implement COMMIT (which has a range) with a by messing
    around with filemap_fdatawrite and filemap_fdatawait (ignoring the
    range) and I'd rather than a vfs helper.

    And in nfsd I call filp->f_op->fsync between the two. Doesn't
    sys_sync_file_range need to call into the filesystem at all?
