I prefer my fix that simply recalls the ->truncate callback if -ENOSPC
is returned by prepare_write. vmtruncate seems way overkill, and after
calling ->truncate the __block_prepare_changes above won't be necessary
because the leftover will be correctly deallocated (no need to clear
them out and to mark them dirty, they will just go away before any
readpage can see them).

for the writepage part of the patch (not quoted in this reply) it seems
fine to me. writepage won't corrupt i_size because it doesn't have the
ability to screwup i_size, and writing at least the successfully mapped
buffers is definitely right thing to do, even if we still can get silent
corruption with holes (but that's not a filesystem kernel side
corruption so I'm satisfied for 2.4 at least :). many thanks for sorting
it out.
