Bloody bad taste, that... This kind of optional arguments is almost always
a bad sign - tends to happen when you have two barely related functions
crammed into one. And yes, proc_fd_info() suffers the same braindamage.
Trying to avoid code duplication is generally a good thing, but it's not
always worth doing - less obfuscated code wins.

Realistically, that one is not going to overflow; you are almost certainly
wasting more cycles on that check of !ret just below than you'll save on
not going into ->show_fdinfo() in case of full buffer.

Excuse me? We should *never* do put_filp() on anything that has already
been opened. Think what happens if you race with close(); close() would
rip the reference from descriptor table and do fput(), leaving you with
the last reference to that struct file. You really don't want to just
go and free it. IOW, that one should be fput().
