Subject: [PATCH] zram: allow request end to coincide with disksize

commit 75c7caf5a052ffd8db3312fa7864ee2d142890c4 upstream.

Pass valid_io_request() checks if request end coincides with disksize
(end equals bound), only fail if we attempt to read beyond the bound.

mkfs.ext2 produces numerous errors:
[ 2164.632747] quiet_error: 1 callbacks suppressed
[ 2164.633260] Buffer I/O error on device zram0, logical block 153599
[ 2164.633265] lost page write due to I/O error on zram0
