Hmm...  This is really asking for something like
	if (copy_to_iter(io_data->buf, ret, <something>) != ret)
		ret = -EFAULT;
with <something> being an iov_iter instead of iovec.  It would be really
nice to have that thing switched to ->read_iter/->write_iter, dropping
->read/->write/->aio_read/->aio_write; I'm not familiar enough with that
code to do it on my own, though, so it would require some help from
maintainers...
