I've redone my test cases and have confirmed that O_DIRECT with pwrite64 triggers the bad

The cases that are fine are:
ftruncate with O_DIRECT

Also, when the system is in this state, if I try to 'ls' the file,
the 'ls' process becomes stuck in state D in sync_page. stracing the 'ls'
shows it is in a call to stat64.
