Ah, that can go.  It used to be ITER_MAPPING.

Okay.  I just copied what ITER_BVEC does.  Should this be handled in
iterate_and_advance() rather than in the code snippets it takes as parameters?

But for the moment, I guess I should just add:

	i->iov_offset += bytes;

to all three (kvec, bvec and xarray)?

Good point.  I wonder, even, if the alignment could just be set to 1.  There's
no kdoc description on the function that says what the result is meant to
represent.

Should that just be cut down, then?

I could do that.  I'd rather not do that here since it hasn't sat in
linux-next, but since nothing uses it, but Linus might permit it.
