Something like the attached patch. Ross?

Subject: [PATCH] dax: Fix inconsistency between mmap and write(2)

When a process has a PMD-sized hole mapped via mmap and later allocates
part of the file underlying this area using write(2), memory mappings
need not be appropriately invalidated if the file has no hole pages
allocated and thus view via mmap will not show the data written by
write(2). Fix the problem by always invalidating memory mappings
covering part of the file for which blocks got allocated.
