mm: cleancache: fix corruption on missed inode invalidation

commit 6ff38bd40230af35e446239396e5fc8ebd6a5248 upstream.

If all pages are deleted from the mapping by memory reclaim and also
moved to the cleancache:

  (no shadow case)
    mapping->nrpages -= nr
    (nrpages becomes 0)

We don't clean the cleancache for an inode after final file truncation

  check (nrpages || nrexceptional) is false
    no truncate_inode_pages
      no cleancache_invalidate_inode(mapping)

These way when reading the new file created with same inode we may get
these trash leftover pages from cleancache and see wrong data instead of
the contents of the new file.

Fix it by always doing truncate_inode_pages which is already ready for
nrpages == 0 && nrexceptional == 0 case and just invalidates inode.
