4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Miklos Szeredi <mszer...@redhat.com>

commit 8fba54aebbdf1f999738121922e74bf796ad60ee upstream.

When reading from a loop device backed by a fuse file it deadlocks on

This is because the page is already locked by the read() operation done on
the loop device.  In this case we don't want to either lock the page or
dirty it.

So do what fs/direct-io.c does: only dirty the page for ITER_IOVEC vectors.
