Can somebody please explain this change to me? Is this an attempt to
support "whole" file copy?  I believe previously file systems relied
on the fact that they don't need to handle 0 size copy_file_range size
call. If this is being changed why not individual implementors (nfs,
etc) were modified to keep the same behavior? I mean is CIFS ok with
getting count=0 copy_file_range request?

In the NFS spec of COPY (copy_file_range), length of 0 means (or could
mean) "whole file" copy. While the linux NFS server did put in support
for doing "whole file" copy, it's not present before 5.13 in the linux
server. It makes it now confusing that a copy of length 0 previously
would return 0 and now it could copy whole file.
