Subject: [PATCH v2] eCryptfs: write optimization

Hi,
  The new version adds the code to handle short copy issue which may occure
in iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic(). The idea is to let ecryptfs_write_end() return zero,
therefore, give iov_iter_fault_in_readable() a chance to handle the page fault 
for the current iovec, then restart the copy operation.

Cheers,
Li Wang
