O-Subject: [RHEL-7 qemu-kvm PATCH 1/2] char: io_channel_send: don't lose written bytes
Bugzilla: 970047

The g_io_channel_write_chars() documentation states,

  bytes_written: The number of bytes written. This can be nonzero even if
                 the return value is not G_IO_STATUS_NORMAL. [...]

io_channel_send() could lose such bytes before.

Furthermore, the (status == G_IO_STATUS_EOF) condition used to evaluate to
constant false whenever it was reached. When that condition actually held,
it always led to -1 / EINVAL. This patch (almost) distinguishes
G_IO_STATUS_EOF only when no bytes have been written, and then treats it
as an error.
