bio: return EINTR if copying to user space got interrupted
commit 2d99b55d378c996b9692a0c93dd25f4ed5d58934 upstream. Commit 35dc248383bbab0a7203fca4d722875bc81ef091 introduced a check for current->mm to see if we have a user space context and only copies data if we do. Now if an IO gets interrupted by a signal data isn't copied into user space any more (as we don't have a user space context) but user space isn't notified about it. This patch modifies the behaviour to return -EINTR from bio_uncopy_user() to notify userland that a signal has interrupted the syscall, otherwise it could lead to a situation where the caller may get a buffer with no data returned. This can be reproduced by issuing SG_IO ioctl()s in one thread while constantly sending signals to it.
