In block_copy_do_copy we fallback to read+write if copy_range failed.
In this case copy_size is larger than defined for buffered IO, and
there is corresponding commit. Still, backup copies data cluster by
cluster, and most of requests are limited to one cluster anyway, so the
only source of this one bad-limited request is copy-before-write
operation.

Further patch will move backup to use block_copy directly, than for
cases where copy_range is not supported, first request will be
oversized in each backup. It's not good, let's change it now.

Fix is simple: just limit first copy_range request like buffer-based
request. If it succeed, set larger copy_range limit.
