Subject[PATCH 21/23] fs: don't allow kernel reads and writes without iter ops
Date
Don't allow calling ->read or ->write with set_fs as a preparation for
killing off set_fs. While I've not triggered any of these cases in my
setups as all the usual suspect (file systems, pipes, sockets, block
devices, system character devices) use the iter ops this is almost
going to be guaranteed to eventuall break something, so print a detailed
error message helping to debug such cases. The fix will be to switch the
affected driver to use the iter ops.
