Subject[PATCH 0/2] sys_write() should write all valid data
Date
There's user-visible misbehavour in sys_write(): when user tries to put
down to disk some data, which crosses boundary of existing memory, sys_write()
either immediately returns with EFAULT or writes first page(s).

Next 2 patches make sys_write()'s behaviour more consistent: it tries now
to write down all what it can.

Vitaly Mayatskikh (2):
Introduce check_readable_bytes()
Perform checks in iov_iter_fault_in_readable() with
check_readable_bytes()
