Subject[PATCH] Revert "fs: remove ksys_dup()"
This reverts commit 8243186f0cc7c57cf9d6a110cd7315c44e3e0be8 and
additionally the fix in commit 2d3145f8d2809592ef803a30c8a342b5a9e2de9a.

Trying to use filp_open() and f_dupfd() instead of pseudo-syscalls
caused more trouble than what is worth it: it requires accessing
vfs internals and causes a strange issue on Androidx86 long after
boot.

---

Instead of that (seemingly suboptimal) approach in trying to get the
fake __user char out of init/main.c, I'll prepare some patches which
have ksys_open() [and a few other ksys_*() functions] operate on
kernelspace pointers instead. That will be more compatible with
keeping vfs internals internal, and actually move us faster in the
direction to let kernel init run with USER_DS. Moreover, that approach
doesn't seem to break youling 257's setup.

Thanks,
Dominik
