I think we still want to run dio_cleanup() if do_direct_IO() failed?
Otherwise we can leak pages.

And there's nothing special about EFAULT or ENOMEM here: if do_direct_IO()
returns any error then that's it: we bale out, yes?

In fact I'm suspecting that this is what the code in there used to do.
Something like:

for (...) {
...
ret = do_direct_IO(...);
...
if (ret) {
dio_dleanup(dio);
break
}
}
return ret;

but then someone later came along and added more code between the end of
the for loop and the `return' statement.

yep, that's exactly what happened. We broke it in the 2.5.45 release back
in October 2002. (Where "we" == "Badari")

So I think what we need to do is something close to this:

--- a/fs/direct-io.c~add-check-do_direct_io-return-val
+++ a/fs/direct-io.c
@@ -1033,7 +1033,7 @@ direct_io_worker(int rw, struct kiocb *i

However I'd like to ask you guys to carefully review and test that please.
