Probably nobody really cares, but currently doing

read(fd, &unmapped_page - 5, 123);

returns 5, and those five bytes do get cleared; if I'm reading the above
right you'd return -EFAULT for that case.

I can't see how we can get here without 'cleared' being positive, so
this can just be 'return cleared' (and if you fix the above EFAULT case
to more accurately track how much got cleared, there's probably no
longer any code to be symmetric with anyway).
