Subject[patch 19/76] iov_iter_advance() fix
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>

iov_iter_advance() skips over zero-length iovecs, however it does not properly
terminate at the end of the iovec array. Fix this by checking against
i->count before we skip a zero-length iov.

The bug was reproduced with a test program that continually randomly creates
iovs to writev. The fix was also verified with the same program and also it
could verify that the correct data was contained in the file after each
writev.
