Subject[ 06/69] vfs: allow O_PATH file descriptors for fstatfs()
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

commit 9d05746e7b16d8565dddbe3200faa1e669d23bbf upstream.

Olga reported that file descriptors opened with O_PATH do not work with
fstatfs(), found during further development of ksh93's thread support.

There is no reason to not allow O_PATH file descriptors here (fstatfs is
very much a path operation), so use "fdget_raw()". See commit
55815f70147d ("vfs: make O_PATH file descriptors usable for 'fstat()'")
for a very similar issue reported for fstat() by the same team.
