What is that chunk for?

For the record - these forests of macros had been my mistake. I'm trying
to get rid of that crap right now, but your changes don't look likely to be
trouble in that respect.

That's broken, same way as kvec and bvec cases are in the same primitive.
Iterator not advanced on failure halfway through.

Hmm... That looks like a really bad overkill - do you need anything beyond count and
iov_offset in that case + perhaps "do we have the very last page"? IOW, do you need
to iterate anything at all here? What am I missing here?

Very limited use; it shouldn't be called for anything other than IOV_ITER case.

Would be easier to have that sucker removed first...

Anyway, I can live with that; the only real bug is in sodding _copy_mc_to_iter(),
it's not anything new and it can be fixed at the same time we deal with kvec and
bvec cases there. Which, unfortunately, requires untangling the macro mess ;-/

What I've got in a local branch right now is
* removal of iov_iter_for_each_range() (yours, BTW)
* separation of flavour and direction (and the end of pseudo-bitmaps)
* untangling and optimizing iov_iter_advance(); iovec/kvec cases are
switched to the logics similar to bvec_iter_advance(), get considerably smaller
and should be faster
* fixing ITER_DISCARD iov_iter_advance() - move past the end should
quietly stop at the end.
* getting rid of iterate_all_kinds() in iov_iter_alignment(),
iov_iter_gap_alignment(), iov_iter_get_pages() and iov_iter_get_pages_alloc().

After that the only remaining irregular case of iterate_all_kinds() is in
iov_iter_npages(); that's what I'm trying to sort out right now. With that
done, all remaining uses will be for copying-style primitives, same as for
iterate_and_advance(). What I want to try after that is a separate "tracking"
argument, so that e.g. in _copy_to_iter() we'd have
iterate_and_advance(i, bytes, from, v,
copyout(v.iov_base, from, v.iov_len),
memcpy_to_page(v.bv_page, v.bv_offset, from, v.bv_len),
memcpy(v.iov_base, from, v.iov_len)
)
Next step will be to teach the damn thing about the possibility of short
copies in kvec/bvec cases. We'd get
#define iterate_and_advance(i, n, p, v, I, K, B) \
__iterate_and_advance(i, n, p, v, I, (K, 0), (B, 0))
and AFAICS it can be done in a way that won't screw code generation for
the normal ones. At that point _copy_mc_to_iter() mess gets cleared *AND*
we can merge K and B callbacks, handling B as kmap_atomic + K + kunmap_atomic
(_copy_mc_to_iter() is the main obstacle to that). Your callback (X) would
also fold into that.

After that I want to try and see how well iov_iter_advance() got optimized
and see if we can get e.g. _copy_to_iter() simply to

iterate_all_kinds(i, bytes, from, v,
copyout(v.iov_base, from, v.iov_len),
memcpy(v.iov_base, from, v.iov_len)
)
iov_iter_advance(i, from - addr);
return from - addr;
If iov_iter_advance() ends up being too much overhead - oh, well, we'll keep
iterate_and_advance() along with iterate_all_kinds(). Needs profiling,
obviously.
