Hmm... what about fget_light() ... is it Davide fault too ?

aio breaks the fget_light() concept too, if process is mono threaded.

* Lightweight file lookup - no refcnt increment if fd table isn't shared.
* You can use this only if it is guranteed that the current task already
* holds a refcnt to that file. That check has to be done at fget() only
* and a flag is returned to be passed to the corresponding fput_light().
* There must not be a cloning between an fget_light/fput_light pair.
struct file *fget_light(unsigned int fd, int *fput_needed)
struct file *file;
struct files_struct *files = current->files;

*fput_needed = 0;
if (likely((atomic_read(&files->count) == 1))) {
file = fcheck_files(files, fd);
} else {
file = fcheck_files(files, fd);
if (file) {
if (atomic_long_inc_not_zero(&file->f_count))
*fput_needed = 1;
/* Didn't get the reference, someone's freed */
file = NULL;

return file;
