vfs,mm: fix return value of read() at s_maxbytes
We truncated the possible read iterator to s_maxbytes in commit c2a9737f45e2 ("vfs,mm: fix a dead loop in truncate_inode_pages_range()"), but our end condition handling was wrong: it's not an error to try to read at the end of the file. Reading past the end should return EOF (0), not EINVAL. See for example https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1649342 http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-coreutils/2016-12/msg00008.html where a md5sum of a maximally sized file fails because the final read is exactly at s_maxbytes.
