Not sure what this:

is trying to do. I'm assuming you want to copy the page contents? If so,
you'd want something like

memcpy(page_address(p) + offset, page_address(page) + offset, len);

with possible kmaps for 'page'.

Irregardless of that particular oddity, I don't think this is the right
path to take at all. We need to delay the pipe buffer consumption until
the appropriate time.
