The splice_direct file_operations method gives file systems the
opportunity to accelerate copying a region between two files.

The generic path attempts to copy the remainder of the region that the
file system fails to accelerate, for whatever reason.  We may choose to
dial this back a bit if the caller wants to avoid unaccelerated copying,
perhaps by setting behavioural flags.

The SPLICE_F_DIRECT flag is arguably misused here to indicate both
file-to-file "direct" splicing *and* acceleration.
