This is a simple patch that makes kcopyd accept zero-size jobs. It is
needed for handling snapshot resizing in shared snapshots.
dm-kcopyd: accept zero-size jobs
This patch changes dm-kcopyd so that it accepts zero-size jobs and completes
them immediatelly via its completion thread.
It is needed for multisnapshots snapshot resizing. When we are writing to
a chunk beyond origin end, no copying is done. To simplify the code, we submit
an empty request to kcopyd and let kcopyd complete it. If we didn't submit
a request to kcopyd and called the completion routine immediatelly, it would
violate the principle that completion is called only from one thread and
it would need additional locking.
