The cache backing filesystem (eg. ext4) might have excised a chunk of zeros
from the cache in order to optimise its extent list.  This instructs the cache
to zero over the cracks.  Actually, I need to think a bit further on this.
This was written assuming that the cache tracks its content independently -
but those patches are not in with this set.

subreq->start shouldn't get changed.  subreq->transferred is sufficient.
