    Pull vfs dedup fixes from Dave Chinner:
     "This reworks the vfs data cloning infrastructure.
      We discovered many issues with these interfaces late in the 4.19 cycle
      - the worst of them (data corruption, setuid stripping) were fixed for
      XFS in 4.19-rc8, but a larger rework of the infrastructure fixing all
      the problems was needed. That rework is the contents of this pull
      Rework the vfs_clone_file_range and vfs_dedupe_file_range
      infrastructure to use a common .remap_file_range method and supply
      generic bounds and sanity checking functions that are shared with the
      data write path. The current VFS infrastructure has problems with
      rlimit, LFS file sizes, file time stamps, maximum filesystem file
      sizes, stripping setuid bits, etc and so they are addressed in these
      We also introduce the ability for the ->remap_file_range methods to
      return short clones so that clones for vfs_copy_file_range() don't get
      rejected if the entire range can't be cloned. It also allows
      filesystems to sliently skip deduplication of partial EOF blocks if
      they are not capable of doing so without requiring errors to be thrown
      to userspace.
      Existing filesystems are converted to user the new remap_file_range
      method, and both XFS and ocfs2 are modified to make use of the new
      generic checking infrastructure"
