Somewhere, probably as a comment for gnttab_copy(), we should have a
comment explaining why the return value is different from all other ops,
which will also go somewhat to explaining the "rc = count - rc;" logic.

I think it would also be wise to have an early exit in
do_grant_table_op() for passing a count of 0.  As far as I can tell, we
will get all the way into the subop handler before discovering a count of 0.

Otherwise, LGTM.
