Here is a differential patch on top of this one, and only showing one of
the two routines. How does this direction look to you?


diff --git a/lib/iov_iter.c b/lib/iov_iter.c

if (unlikely(res <= 0))
return res;
- return (res == n ? len : res * PAGE_SIZE) - *start;
+
+ /* Cap len at the number of pages that were actually pinned: */
+ if (res < n)
+ len = res * PAGE_SIZE;
+

}

return -EFAULT;
