nfs: fix dio deadlock when O_DIRECT flag is flipped
commit ee8a1a8b160a87dc3a9c81a86796aa4db85ea815 upstream. We only support swap file calling nfs_direct_IO. However, application might be able to get to nfs_direct_IO if it toggles O_DIRECT flag during IO and it can deadlock because we grab inode->i_mutex in nfs_file_direct_write(). So return 0 for such case. Then the generic layer will fall back to buffer IO.
