Subject[PATCH] iov_iter: optimise iter type checking
Date
The problem here is that iov_iter_is_*() helpers check types for
equality, but all iterate_* helpers do bitwise ands. This confuses
compilers, so even if some cases were handled separately with
iov_iter_is_*(), corresponding ifs in iterate*() right after are not
eliminated.

E.g. iov_iter_npages() first handles discards, but iterate_all_kinds()
still checks for discard iter type and generates unreachable code down
the line.
