O_TMPFILE problem

I'm doing a couple of test about O_TMPFILE on my fs. I can see that when the file is closed the blocks allocated are not freed. It happens because of i_mode, it isn't a regular file nor a directory nor a link. I added S_IFREG in my implementation of tmpfile callback when I have to call new_inode() and now it works, but am I missing something here?
