Hm, there are plenty of other error cases that don't call
iov_iter_advance() and shouldn't trigger this warning ; I'm not sure
just adding one particular call to this is a good solution.

How reproducible is this? From the description it should happen
everytime you cat a small file? (I'm surprised cat uses sendfile, what
cat version? coreutils' doesn't seem to do that on their git)

What kernel version do you get this on? Bonus points if you can confirm
this didn't use to happen, and full points for a bisect.

(cat on a small file is something I do all the time in my tests, I'd
like to be able to reproduce to understand the issue better as I'm not
familiar with that part of the code)
