    So they have both XFS + NFS O_DIRECT?

    The answer to your question is then that somebody made the trivial
    conversion on XFS... It's just a question of replacing the second
    argument of the direct_IO() method with a filp, then extracting the
    inode from that. A 2-liner patch at most...

    The point here is that Marcelo's tree does not include XFS, so my
    patch can't fix it up...
    As I said, I suggest replacing KERNEL_HAS_O_DIRECT with
    KERNEL_HAS_O_DIRECT2 so that the XFS patches can switch on that, and
    hence provide the 2-liner on newer kernels...
