Then it is going to break blocklayout user space program blkmapd, which is stared before mounting any file system and it tries to open the pipe file when started.
Not sure if you implement the same logic on nfs pipe as well. But if you do, then nfs client user space program idmapd will fail to start for the same reason.

Why not just fail to load module if you fail to initialize pipefs? When is rpc_get_sb_net() going to fail?
