splice: sendfile() at once fails for big files

Using sendfile with below small program to get MD5 sums of some files,
it appear that big files (over 64kbytes with 4k pages system) get a
wrong MD5 sum while small files get the correct sum.
This program uses sendfile() to send a file to an AF_ALG socket
for hashing.

/* md5sum2.c */
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <linux/if_alg.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
	int sk = socket(AF_ALG, SOCK_SEQPACKET, 0);
	struct stat st;
	struct sockaddr_alg sa = {
		.salg_family = AF_ALG,
		.salg_type = "hash",
		.salg_name = "md5",
	};
	int n;

	bind(sk, (struct sockaddr*)&sa, sizeof(sa));

	for (n = 1; n < argc; n++) {
		int size;
		int offset = 0;
		char buf[4096];
		int fd;
		int sko;
		int i;

		fd = open(argv[n], O_RDONLY);
		sko = accept(sk, NULL, 0);
		fstat(fd, &st);
		size = st.st_size;
		sendfile(sko, fd, &offset, size);
		size = read(sko, buf, sizeof(buf));
		for (i = 0; i < size; i++)
			printf("%2.2x", buf[i]);
		printf("  %s\n", argv[n]);
		close(fd);
		close(sko);
	}
	exit(0);
}

Test below is done using official linux patch files. First result is
with a software based md5sum. Second result is with the program above.

After investivation, it appears that sendfile() sends the files by blocks
of 64kbytes (16 times PAGE_SIZE). The problem is that at the end of each
block, the SPLICE_F_MORE flag is missing, therefore the hashing operation
is reset as if it was the end of the file.

This patch adds SPLICE_F_MORE to the flags when more data is pending.

With the patch applied, we get the correct sums:
