Series [v2] mm: mark async iocb read as NOWAIT once some data has been, copied | expand

Once we've copied some data for an iocb that is marked with IOCB_WAITQ,
we should no longer attempt to async lock a new page. Instead make sure
we return the copied amount, and let the caller retry, instead of
returning -EIOCBQUEUED for a new page.

This should only be possible with read-ahead disabled on the below
device, and multiple threads racing on the same file. Haven't been able
to reproduce on anything else.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v5.9
Fixes: 1a0a7853b901 ("mm: support async buffered reads in generic_file_buffered_read()")
Reported-by: Kent Overstreet <kent.overstreet@gmail.com>

- Place the NOWAIT marker when we increment 'written' (Willy)
