Subject[PATCH 049/109] fs: add do_pipe2() helper; remove internal call to sys_pipe2()
Date
Using this helper removes an in-kernel call to the sys_pipe2() syscall.

This patch is part of a series which removes in-kernel calls to syscalls.
On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined. For details, see
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180325162527.GA17492@light.dominikbrodowski.net
