Subject: [PATCH v2] netfs: fix test for whether we can skip read when writing beyond EOF
Date: Mon, 14 Jun 2021 08:23:27 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210614122327.8332-1-jlayton@kernel.org> (raw)

It's not sufficient to skip reading when the pos is beyond the EOF.
There may be data at the head of the page that we need to fill in
before the write.

Add a new helper function that corrects and clarifies the logic of
when we can skip reads, and have it only zero out the part of the page
that won't have data copied in for the write.

Finally, don't set the page Uptodate after zeroing. It's not up to date
since the write data won't have been copied in yet.

Fixes: e1b1240c1ff5f ("netfs: Add write_begin helper")

v2:
- rename new helper with netfs_* prefix
- return early for full page writes
- no need to calculate index to see if write is beyond last page
- no need to special case i_size == 0
