It's not sufficient to skip reading when the pos is beyond the EOF.
There may be data at the head of the page that we need to fill in
before the write.

Add a new helper function that corrects and clarifies the logic.

Willy pointed out that I had missed the i_size == 0 case in my earlier
patch. Also, the whole condition was getting a bit messy. This factors
it out into a new helper (and we can maybe copy this helper into netfs
code).

Like the helper.  A couple of minor tweaks ...

	size_t offset = offset_in_page(pos);

At some point, we're going to need to pass the full len to
->write_begin, so that we can decide whether it's worth allocating
more than a single page.  Could you make 'len' here size_t, and
check for len >= PAGE_SIZE?

(with the current code, the offset of 0 is a redundant check, but
I'd rather see this future-proofed).
