don't bother with {get,put}_write_access() on non-regular files
it's pointless and actually leads to wrong behaviour in at least one moderately convoluted case (pipe(), close one end, try to get to another via /proc/*/fd and run into ETXTBUSY). Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
