the problem you seen isn't specific to O_DIRECT. This should solve your
problem (not just for O_DIRECT):

It's a long time that I want to include the anti-bounce bits, but I am
still looking into the vm. The uglier part is that I suspect we'll also
need to make a 2G bounce option for some hardware combination. I hope
I'm wrong :).
