Yes, we need it. When we are overwriting an existing file, DIO calls
f2fs_map_blocks() with create=0. From the DIO code, I see that this happens
because blockdev_direct_IO() passes this dio flag DIO_SKIP_HOLES. And then
in get_more_blocks(), below code updates create=0, when we are overwriting
an existing file.

                create = dio->op == REQ_OP_WRITE;
                if (dio->flags & DIO_SKIP_HOLES) {
                        if (fs_startblk <= ((i_size_read(dio->inode) - 1) >>
                                                        i_blkbits))
                                create = 0;
                }

                ret = (*sdio->get_block)(dio->inode, fs_startblk,
                                                map_bh, create);
