Hi Trond,
Your fix to nfs_readpage_result worked. There may be a small hole
remaining, which the following closes. This also worked.

- if (data->res.eof || page_index(page) <= inode->i_size >> PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT)
+ if (data->res.eof || page_index(page) < PAGE_CACHE_ALIGN(inode->i_size) >> PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT)

Thanks for your help,
(I'll leave it to you to submit the patch you think best to Marcello and/or Linus).
