SubjectRe: [PATCH] do_direct_IO: Use inode->i_blkbits to compute block count to be cleaned

NAK. Please see commit ab73857e354 ("direct-io: don't read
inode->i_blkbits multiple times").

I think you want:

const unsigned i_blkbits = sdio->blkbits + sdio->blkfactor;

as is used elsewhere in the code.

Cheers,
Jeff
