Subject: 32-bit bug in iovec iterator changes

Dave Chinner called it.  

Al, I'm seeing a regression which shows up using a 32-bit x86 kernel.
The symptoms of the bug is when run under KVM, with a 5 GB /dev/vdc
virtual block device, a read at offset 2 ** 30 fails with a short
read:

# dd if=/dev/vdc of=/dev/null bs=4k skip=262144 count=1
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.0164144 s, 0.0 kB/s

On a 3.15 kernel, this command works:

# dd if=/dev/vdc of=/dev/null bs=4k skip=262144 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
4096 bytes (4.1 kB) copied, 0.0457984 s, 89.4 kB/s

I tried bisecting it, but unfortunately the iovec iterator changes are
not cleanly bisectable, since copy_page_from_iter() gets introduced
some two dozen patches before it gets defined.  :-(

However, the bisect leads quite squarely to to the iovec iterator
patches.

Al, I'd appreciate it if you could take a look?

Thanks!!

    new methods: ->read_iter() and ->write_iter()
    
    Beginning to introduce those.  Just the callers for now, and it's
    clumsier than it'll eventually become; once we finish converting
    aio_read and aio_write instances, the things will get nicer.
    
    For now, these guys are in parallel to ->aio_read() and ->aio_write();
    they take iocb and iov_iter, with everything in iov_iter already
    validated.  File offset is passed in iocb->ki_pos, iov/nr_segs -
    in iov_iter.
    
    Main concerns in that series are stack footprint and ability to
    split the damn thing cleanly.

    replace checking for ->read/->aio_read presence with check in ->f_mode
    
    Since we are about to introduce new methods (read_iter/write_iter), the
    tests in a bunch of places would have to grow inconveniently.  Check
    once (at open() time) and store results in ->f_mode as FMODE_CAN_READ
    and FMODE_CAN_WRITE resp.  It might end up being a temporary measure -
    once everything switches from ->aio_{read,write} to ->{read,write}_iter
    it might make sense to return to open-coded checks.  We'll see...

    fuse: pull iov_iter initializations up
    
    ... to fuse_direct_{read,write}().  ->direct_IO() path uses the
    iov_iter passed by the caller instead.

    new helper: iov_iter_get_pages()
    
    iov_iter_get_pages(iter, pages, maxsize, &start) grabs references pinning
    the pages of up to maxsize of (contiguous) data from iter.  Returns the
    amount of memory grabbed or -error.  In case of success, the requested
    area begins at offset start in pages[0] and runs through pages[1], etc.
    Less than requested amount might be returned - either because the contiguous
    area in the beginning of iterator is smaller than requested, or because
    the kernel failed to pin that many pages.
    
    direct-io.c switched to using iov_iter_get_pages()

    start adding the tag to iov_iter
    
    For now, just use the same thing we pass to ->direct_IO() - it's all
    iovec-based at the moment.  Pass it explicitly to iov_iter_init() and
    account for kvec vs. iovec in there, by the same kludge NFS ->direct_IO()
    uses.

    new helper: generic_file_read_iter()
    
    iov_iter-using variant of generic_file_aio_read().  Some callers
    converted.  Note that it's still not quite there for use as ->read_iter() -
    we depend on having zero iter->iov_offset in O_DIRECT case.  Fortunately,
    that's true for all converted callers (and for generic_file_aio_read() itself).

    give ->direct_IO() a copy of iov_iter
    
    the thing is, we want to advance what's given to ->direct_IO() as we
    are forming the request; however, the callers care about the amount
    of data actually transferred, not the amount we tried to transfer.
    It's more convenient to allow ->direct_IO() instances do use
    iov_iter_advance() on the copy of iov_iter, leaving the actual
    advancing of the original to caller.
