Subject[PATCH 4.7 142/143] sysfs: correctly handle read offset on PREALLOC attrs
Date
4.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@yandex-team.ru>

commit 17d0774f80681020eccc9638d925a23f1fc4f671 upstream.

Attributes declared with __ATTR_PREALLOC use sysfs_kf_read() which returns
zero bytes for non-zero offset. This breaks script checkarray in mdadm tool
in debian where /bin/sh is 'dash' because its builtin 'read' reads only one
byte at a time. Script gets 'i' instead of 'idle' when reads current action
from /sys/block/$dev/md/sync_action and as a result does nothing.

This patch adds trivial implementation of partial read: generate whole
string and move required part into buffer head.
