Oh yes, sorry I was talking about the behavior _after_ your patch, on
the _next_ sendmsg/sendpage call.

It should now work like this:

	bpf_exec_tx_verdict() returns success, next iteration of the
	sendmsg/sendpage loop hits sk_stream_wait_memory(), we return
	positive copied which is counts the entire record, even though
	some of it is still in partially_sent_record. If user space
	calls sendmsg again we will hit sk_stream_wait_memory() ->
	send_end -> this time copied is 0, so user space will see
	-EAGAIN.

If I'm still not making sense don't worry about it, I think it should
be easy to explain based on the selftest.
