No. First of all, you'd need ->count updated as well; for kvec and bvec you
*REALLY* don't have to end up with ->iov_offset exceeding the size of current
kvec or bvec resp.; Bad Shit(tm) happens that way.

Huh? It's the worst alignment of all segment boundaries, what else? As in
if (iov_iter_alignment(i) & 1023)
// we have something in there that isn't 1K-aligned.
