Network drivers are using sendpage_ok() to check the first page of an
iterator in order to disable MSG_SPLICE_PAGES. The iterator can
represent list of contiguous pages.

When MSG_SPLICE_PAGES is enabled skb_splice_from_iter() is being used,
it requires all pages in the iterator to be sendable. Therefore it needs
to check that each page is sendable.

The patch introduces a helper sendpages_ok(), it returns true if all the
contiguous pages are sendable.

Drivers who want to send contiguous pages with MSG_SPLICE_PAGES may use
this helper to check whether the page list is OK. If the helper does not
return true, the driver should remove MSG_SPLICE_PAGES flag.
