    [CRYPTO] api: scatterwalk_copychunks() fails to advance through scatterlist
    In the loop in scatterwalk_copychunks(), if walk->offset is zero,
    then scatterwalk_pagedone rounds that up to the nearest page boundary:
                walk->offset += PAGE_SIZE - 1;
                walk->offset &= PAGE_MASK;
    which is a no-op in this case, so we don't advance to the next element
    of the scatterlist array:
                if (walk->offset >= walk->sg->offset + walk->sg->length)
                        scatterwalk_start(walk, sg_next(walk->sg));
    and we end up copying the same data twice.
    It appears that other callers of scatterwalk_{page}done first advance
    walk->offset, so I believe that's the correct thing to do here.
    This caused a bug in NFS when run with krb5p security, which would
    cause some writes to fail with permissions errors--for example, writes
    of less than 8 bytes (the des blocksize) at the start of a file.
    A git-bisect shows the bug was originally introduced by
    5c64097aa0f6dc4f27718ef47ca9a12538d62860, first in 2.6.19-rc1.
