Subject: [PATCH v5 2/7] coredump: Let dump_emit() bail out on short writes
Date: Thu, 27 Aug 2020 13:49:27 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200827114932.3572699-3-jannh@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200827114932.3572699-1-jannh@google.com>

dump_emit() has a retry loop, but there seems to be no way for that retry
logic to actually be used; and it was also buggy, writing the same data
repeatedly after a short write.

Let's just bail out on a short write.
