IOW, the loop on failure exit should go through the bio, like __bio_unmap_user()
does. We *also* need to put everything left unused in pages[], but only from the
last iteration through iov_for_each().

Frankly, I would prefer to reuse the pages[], rather than append to it on each
iteration. Used iov_iter_get_pages_alloc(), actually.
