Or that XFS in some conditions shoves into pipe more than it reports,
so not all of that gets emptied, filling the sucker up after sufficient
amount of iterations...

There's at least one suspicious place in iomap_dio_actor() -
if (!(dio->flags & IOMAP_DIO_WRITE)) {
iov_iter_zero(length, dio->submit.iter);
dio->size += length;
return length;
}
which assumes that iov_iter_zero() always succeeds. That's very
much _not_ true - neither for iovec-backed, not for pipe-backed.
Orangefs read_one_page() is fine (it calls that sucker for bvec-backed
iov_iter it's just created), but iomap_dio_actor() is not.

I'm not saying that it will suffice, but we definitely need this:

diff --git a/fs/iomap.c b/fs/iomap.c

}
