anonfd: Allow making anon files read-only
It seems a couple places such as arch/ia64/kernel/perfmon.c and drivers/infiniband/core/uverbs_main.c could use anon_inode_getfile() instead of a private pseudo-fs + alloc_file(), if only there were a way to get a read-only file. So provide this by having anon_inode_getfile() create a read-only file if we pass O_RDONLY in flags. Signed-off-by: Roland Dreier <rolandd@cisco.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
