Per my understanding of iov_iter, we need to call iov_iter_advance()
even when the read out count is 0. I believe we can see this common style
in other fs.

busybox cat

Per my check, it can be 100% reproduced with busybox cat + "msize=2097152"
mount option. NOTE: msize=2097152 isn't a magic number it can be other
numbers which can ensure zerocopy code path is executed: p9_client_read_once
