block: bio_iov_iter_get_pages: pin more pages for multi-segment IOs

[ Upstream commit 17d51b10 ]

bio_iov_iter_get_pages() currently only adds pages for the next non-zero
segment from the iov_iter to the bio. That's suboptimal for callers,
which typically try to pin as many pages as fit into the bio. This patch
converts the current bio_iov_iter_get_pages() into a static helper, and
introduces a new helper that allocates as many pages as

 1) fit into the bio,
 2) are present in the iov_iter,
 3) and can be pinned by MM.

Error is returned only if zero pages could be pinned. Because of 3), a
zero return value doesn't necessarily mean all pages have been pinned.
Callers that have to pin every page in the iov_iter must still call this
function in a loop (this is currently the case).

This change matters most for __blkdev_direct_IO_simple(), which calls
bio_iov_iter_get_pages() only once. If it obtains less pages than
requested, it returns a "short write" or "short read", and
__generic_file_write_iter() falls back to buffered writes, which may
lead to data corruption.

Fixes: 72ecad22 ("block: support a full bio worth of IO for simplified bdev direct-io")
