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).

I think there was a reason for doing it this way.  Perhaps so as to
allocate the space before reading the file.
