Subject[PATCH] fs: stub out ioprio_check_cap for !CONFIG_BLOCK
When CONFIG_BLOCK is disabled, we now run into a link error:

fs/aio.o: In function `aio_prep_rw':
aio.c:(.text+0xf68): undefined reference to `ioprio_check_cap'

Since the priorities are unused without block devices, this adds a stub
that always returns success.

Fixes: d9a08a9e616b ("fs: Add aio iopriority support")
Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <>
Not sure if my assertion is correct, please check that returning zero
actually makes sense here.
