[PATCH 4.20 40/65] nfsd4: zero-length WRITE should succeed

4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit fdec6114ee1f0f43b1ad081ad8d46b23ba126d70 upstream.

Zero-length writes are legal; from 5661 section 18.32.3: "If the count
is zero, the WRITE will succeed and return a count of zero subject to
permissions checking".

This check is unnecessary and is causing zero-length reads to return
