bug#9800: Incomplete truncated file buffers from the /proc filesystem

It strikes me that regular files can go as you read them, too,
and that Emacs is not doing this properly.  That is, Emacs should
be fixed so that it continues to read from a growing regular file
until a proper EOF is reached (i.e., until read returns 0).

If Emacs is fixed in this way, it will read these /proc files
correctly too.
