I know that. I am saying the memcpy is happening for regular binder devices
as well but the macro has BINDERFS in the name. That's all. It is not a
significant eye sore. But is a bit odd.

No I am not talking about the checks at all, I am talking about the unwanted
mem copy you are doing for regular binder devices now. Before binderfs this
would not have happened, but now for regular binder devices we have to do the
extra mem copies which were avoided before. That was what I was talking about.

But this discussing is getting to bike shedding at this point, and since the
overhead is likely small, I am Ok with the change (though I don't like very
much the additional memcpy and the associated space wastage in the
transaction buffer for regular binder devices).

thanks!
