Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the net-next tree
Hi all,

After merging the net-next tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

net/smc/af_smc.c: In function 'smc_splice_read':
net/smc/af_smc.c:1258:39: error: passing argument 1 of 'smc->clcsock->ops->splice_read' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
rc = smc->clcsock->ops->splice_read(smc->clcsock, ppos,
net/smc/af_smc.c:1258:39: note: expected 'struct file *' but argument is of type 'struct socket *'
net/smc/af_smc.c: At top level:
net/smc/af_smc.c:1288:17: error: initialization from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
.splice_read = smc_splice_read,
net/smc/af_smc.c:1288:17: note: (near initialization for 'smc_sock_ops.splice_read')

Caused by commit

ac7138746e14 ("smc: establish new socket family")

interacting with commit

15a8f657c71d ("switch socket ->splice_read() to struct file *")

from the vfs tree.

I applied the following merge fix patch which could well be incorrect ...
