That's correct.  The overall goal is that copy_file_range will be able
to call ->clone_file_range with a "I can handle a short clone" flag so
that the fs (and the prep functions) know that they're allowed to
shorten the request length, and we have a way to communicate the actual
results back to userspace.

Neither FS_IOC_CLONE nor FS_IOC_CLONERANGE will be able to take
advantage of this, of course.  They won't pass in the flag, and any
implementation that wants to shorten the length will pass back -EINVAL
instead.
