Subject: [PATCH] CacheFiles: Don't write a full page if there's only a partial page to cache

cachefiles_write_page() writes a full page to the backing file for the last
page of the netfs file, even if the netfs file's last page is only a partial
page.

This causes the EOF on the backing file to be extended beyond the EOF of the
netfs, and thus the backing file will be truncated by cachefiles_attr_changed()
called from cachefiles_lookup_object().

So we need to limit the write we make to the backing file on that last page
such that it doesn't push the EOF too far.


Also, if a backing file that has a partial page at the end is expanded, we
discard the partial page and refetch it on the basis that we then have a hole
in the file with invalid data, and should the power go out...  A better way to
deal with this could be to record a note that the partial page contains invalid
data until the correct data is written into it.

This isn't a problem for netfs's that discard the whole backing file if the
file size changes (such as NFS).
