[PATCH] fs: error case fix in __generic_file_aio_read



When __generic_file_aio_read() hits an error during reading, it reports the
error iff nothing has successfully been read yet.  This is condition - when
an error occurs, if nothing has been read/written, report the error code;
otherwise, report the amount of bytes successfully transferred upto that
point.

This corner case can be exposed by performing readv(2) with the following
iov.

 iov[0] = len0 @ ptr0
 iov[1] = len1 @ NULL (or any other invalid pointer)
 iov[2] = len2 @ ptr2

When file size is enough, performing above readv(2) results in

 len0 bytes from file_pos @ ptr0
 len2 bytes from file_pos + len0 @ ptr2

And the return value is len0 + len2.  Test program is attached to this
mail.

This patch makes __generic_file_aio_read()'s error handling identical to
other functions.
