Set the IOMAP_F_COW flag and create the srcmap based on
current extents to read from.

I don't think this is correct.  We should only set IOMAP_F_COW
when we actually fill out the srcmap.  Which is a very good agument
for Darrick's suggestion to check for a non-emptry srcmap.

Also this is missing the actually interesting part in
xfs_file_iomap_begin_delay.

I ended up spending the better half of the day trying to implement
that and did run into a few bugs in the core iomap changes, mostly
due to a confusion which iomap to use.  So I ended up reworking those
a bit to:

  a) check srcmap->type to see if there is a valid srcmap
  b) set the srcmap pointer to iomap so that it doesn't need to
     be special cased all over
  c) fixed up a few more places to use the srcmap

This now at least survives xfstests -g quick on a 4k xfs file system
for.  Here is my current tree:

That looks somewhat reasonable. The XFS mapping function is turning
into spagetti and getting really hard to follow again, though.
Perhaps we should consider splitting the shared/COW path out of
it...

Cheers,

Dave.
