Ok so just xfstests 074 with a 512-byte block?  I will test that when
I get a chance....

*nod* I'm afraid that makes sense, it's ignoring this because it
thinks it's a hole:

                 * A hole may still be marked uptodate because discard_buffer
                 * leaves the flag set.
                if (!buffer_mapped(bh) && buffer_uptodate(bh)) {
                        imap_valid = 0;

It appears that in your case it should not be a hole...
