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

ftp://ftp.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/people/axboe/patches/2.4.13-pre4/block-highmem-all-17.bz2

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 :).
