Subject: [PATCH] sysctl: Fix proc_do_large_bitmap for large input buffers

Today, proc_do_large_bitmap() truncates a large write input buffer
to PAGE_SIZE - 1, which may result in misparsed numbers at the
(truncated) end of the buffer.  Further, it fails to notify the caller
that the buffer was truncated, so it doesn't get called iteratively
to finish the entire input buffer.

Tell the caller if there's more work to do by adding the skipped
amount back to left/*lenp before returning.

To fix the misparsing, reset the position if we have completely
consumed a truncated buffer (or if just one char is left, which
may be a "-" in a range), and ask the caller to come back for
more.
