broken in 1bdc76aea115 "iov_iter: use bvec iterator to implement iterate_bvec()",
unless I'm misreading it...

Zero-length segments are not disallowed; it's not all that hard to filter them
out in iter_file_splice_write(), but the intent had always been to have
iterate_all_kinds() et.al. able to cope with those.

How are these pipe_buffers with ->len == 0 generated in that reproducer, BTW?
There might be something else fishy going on...
