Could you try this and see if it works? What happens is that unlike
e.g. generic_file_read_iter/generic_file_write_iter, NFS O_DIRECT handling
does not make sure that iov_iter had been advanced by the amount
actually transferred - it is left advanced by the amount *requested*.

mm/filemap.c code gets around that by taking a copy of iov_iter, feeding
it to ->direct_IO() and then advancing the original by the amount actually
done. That's what the previous patch had duplicated for NFS, but we have
a cleaner way to do that now - both for NFS and in mm/filemap.c. Namely,
use iov_iter_revert(). For NFS it means making nfs_direct_..._schedule_iovec()
return how much it has actually requested from server and having their
callers do iov_iter_revert() after nfs_direct_wait() has reported how much
has actually come through. I've similar patches for mm/filemap.c avoiding
the games with copy of iov_iter there, but those are not fixes per se,
so they are separate. This one just deals with NFS.

fix nfs O_DIRECT advancing iov_iter too much

It leaves the iterator advanced by the amount of IO it has requested
instead of the amount actually transferred. Among other things,
that confuses the hell out of generic_file_splice_read().
