I'm not sure where you see this style, but I don't see exceptions for
0-sized read not advancing the iov in general, and I guess this makes

Rather than make an exception for 0, how about just removing the if as
follow ?

I've checked that the non_zc case (copy_to_iter with 0 size) also works
to the same effect, so I'm not sure why the check got added in the
first place... But then again this is old code so maybe the semantics
changed since 2015.

If you're ok with that, would you mind resending that way?

I'd also want the commit message to be reworded a bit, at least the
first line (summary) doesn't make sense right now: I have no idea
what you mean by "free what was emitted".
Just "9p: advance iov on empty read" or something similar would do.

Ok, could reproduce with busybox cat, thanks.
As expected I can't reproduce with older kernels so will run a bisect
for the sake of it as time allows
