I don't think it's really redundant, although I agree is messy due to the
fact we try to clone first instead of copying them.

So, in the clone path, this is the only place where we return -EXDEV if:

1) we don't have ->copy_file_range *and*
2) we have ->remap_file_range but the i_sb are different.

The check in vfs_copy_file_range() is only executed if:

1) we have *valid* ->copy_file_range ops and/or
2) we have *valid* ->remap_file_range

So... if we remove the check in generic_copy_file_checks() as you suggest
and:
- we don't have ->copy_file_range,
- we have ->remap_file_range but
- the i_sb are different

we'll return the -EOPNOTSUPP (the one set in line "ret = -EOPNOTSUPP;" in
function vfs_copy_file_range() ) instead of -EXDEV.

But I may have got it all wrong. I've looked so many times at this code
that I'm probably useless at finding problems in it :-)

Cheers,
