iomap: dio data corruption and spurious errors when pipes fill
When doing direct IO to a pipe for do_splice_direct(), then pipe is trivial to fill up and overflow as it can only hold 16 pages. At this point bio_iov_iter_get_pages() then returns -EFAULT, and we abort the IO submission process. Unfortunately, iomap_dio_rw() propagates the error back up the stack. The error is converted from the EFAULT to EAGAIN in generic_file_splice_read() to tell the splice layers that the pipe is full. do_splice_direct() completely fails to handle EAGAIN errors (it aborts on error) and returns EAGAIN to the caller. copy_file_write() then completely fails to handle EAGAIN as well, and so returns EAGAIN to userspace, having failed to copy the data it was asked to. Avoid this whole steaming pile of fail by having iomap_dio_rw() silently swallow EFAULT errors and so do short reads. To make matters worse, iomap_dio_actor() has a stale data exposure bug bio_iov_iter_get_pages() fails - it does not zero the tail block that it may have been left uncovered by partial IO. Fix the error handling case to drop to the sub-block zeroing rather than immmediately returning the -EFAULT error. Signed-off-by: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: Darrick J.
