Why?  This path is called under two circumstances: readahead and readpage.
In both cases, we're trying to bring the entire page uptodate.  The inline
extent is always the tail of the file, so we may as well zero the part of
the page past the end of file and mark the entire page uptodate instead
and leaving the end of the page !uptodate.

I see the case where, eg, we have the first 2048 bytes of the file
out-of-inode and then 20 bytes in the inode.  So we'll create the iop
for the head of the file, but then we may as well finish the entire
PAGE_SIZE chunk as part of this iteration rather than update 2048-3071
as being uptodate and leave the 3072-4095 block for a future iteration.
