I was wrong about who was at fault here, it was the pagebuf code in
the case were we were zeroing holes in files, that path should not
touch the inode size.

        - when writing a sparse file, do not change the inode size when zeroing
          buffers at the end of the file. This caused the linux inode size to 
get
          out of sync with the xfs inode size and confuse nfs.
