it works ok.
But there is still at least one problem: if ops->store returns an error,
then there will be a substraction and the write will loop (i could do it
with a store wich returned EINVAL and a 22 length string).

I don't know if you can put a '\0' at buffer->page[count] if
count == PAGE_SIZE.

Moreover, i think it is more correct to add only the leading
whitespace from the count because if the ops->store doesn't read
everything it will do something weird:

For example, if we have ' 123 ' and ops->store read only one char,
then the function will return 7 (1 leading + 4 trailing + 1 read). For
the next call the buffer will be filled only by spaces which is
incorrect (it should be '23 ').

what if count == PAGE_SIZE ?
