Check the current vfs.git#for-next (there's even some generic_write_checks()
work in it). The same goes for the rest of the series. Please, rebase it.

What's more, generic_write_checks() should take iov_iter *, not the address
of something its ->count had been copied into. Note that all callers of that
thing end up doing iov_iter_truncate() pretty soon afterwards. I hadn't
pushed that one out yet (there is some weirdness in ocfs2 which might be
a bug; I want to sort that out first), but that's where it's going.
