Subject[ 62/66] tcp: fix MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST logic
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit ae62ca7b03217be5e74759dc6d7698c95df498b3 ]

commit 35f9c09fe9c72e (tcp: tcp_sendpages() should call tcp_push() once)
added an internal flag : MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST meant to be set on all
frags but the last one for a splice() call.

The condition used to set the flag in pipe_to_sendpage() relied on
splice() user passing the exact number of bytes present in the pipe,
or a smaller one.

But some programs pass an arbitrary high value, and the test fails.

The effect of this bug is a lack of tcp_push() at the end of a
splice(pipe -> socket) call, and possibly very slow or erratic TCP
sessions.

We should both test sd->total_len and fact that another fragment
is in the pipe (pipe->nrbufs > 1)

Many thanks to Willy for providing very clear bug report, bisection
and test programs.
