fs: Preserve error code in get_empty_filp(), part 2
Allocating a file structure in function get_empty_filp() might fail because of several reasons: - not enough memory for file structures - operation is not allowed - user is over its limit Currently the function returns NULL in all cases and we loose the exact reason of the error. All callers of get_empty_filp() assume that the function can fail with ENFILE only. Return error through pointer. Change all callers to preserve this error code. [AV: cleaned up a bit, carved the get_empty_filp() part out into a separate commit (things remaining here deal with alloc_file()), removed pipe(2) behaviour change] Signed-off-by: Anatol Pomozov <anatol.pomozov@gmail.com> Reviewed-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
