mm/filemap: don't allow partially uptodate page for pipes

Starting from 4.9-rc1 kernel, I started noticing some test failures of
sendfile(2) and splice(2) (sendfile0N and splice01 from LTP) when
testing on sub-page block size filesystems (tested both XFS and ext4),
these syscalls start to return EIO in the tests.  e.g.

  sendfile02    1  TFAIL  :  sendfile02.c:133: sendfile(2) failed to return expected value, expected: 26, got: -1
  sendfile02    2  TFAIL  :  sendfile02.c:133: sendfile(2) failed to return expected value, expected: 24, got: -1
  sendfile02    3  TFAIL  :  sendfile02.c:133: sendfile(2) failed to return expected value, expected: 22, got: -1
  sendfile02    4  TFAIL  :  sendfile02.c:133: sendfile(2) failed to return expected value, expected: 20, got: -1

This is because that in sub-page block size cases, we don't need the
whole page to be uptodate, only the part we care about is uptodate is OK
(if fs has ->is_partially_uptodate defined).

But page_cache_pipe_buf_confirm() doesn't have the ability to check the
partially-uptodate case, it needs the whole page to be uptodate.  So it
returns EIO in this case.

This is a regression introduced by commit 82c156f8 ("switch
generic_file_splice_read() to use of ->read_iter()").  Prior to the
change, generic_file_splice_read() doesn't allow partially-uptodate page
either, so it worked fine.

Fix it by skipping the partially-uptodate check if we're working on a
pipe in do_generic_file_read(), so we read the whole page from disk as
long as the page is not uptodate.

I think the other way to fix it is to add the ability to check & allow
partially-uptodate page to page_cache_pipe_buf_confirm(), but that is
much harder to do and seems gain little.
