(matt already gave you the answer you wanted but...)
yes, msync(MS_INVALIDATE) works for vnode (or any uvm_object) pages too,
the difference is just that a dirty vnode-backed page is
written to backing store before being invalidated.
but if you just want something for hand testing and are running as root,
then the failed-umount trick is more convenient. I use that myself.
