*: convert stream-like files -> stream_open, even if they use noop_llseek
This patch continues 10dce8af3422 (fs: stream_open - opener for stream-like files so that read and write can run simultaneously without deadlock) and c5bf68fe0c86 (*: convert stream-like files from nonseekable_open -> stream_open) and teaches steam_open.cocci to consider files as being stream-like not only if they have .llseek=no_llseek, but also if they have .llseek=noop_llseek. This is safe to do: the comment about noop_llseek says This is an implementation of ->llseek useable for the rare special case when userspace expects the seek to succeed but the (device) file is actually not able to perform the seek. In this case you use noop_llseek() instead of falling back to the default implementation of ->llseek. and in general noop_llseek was massively added to drivers in 6038f373a3dc (llseek: automatically add .llseek fop) when changing default for NULL .llseek from NOP to no_llseek with the idea to avoid breaking compatibility, if maybe some user-space program was using lseek on a device without caring about the result, but caring if it was an error or not. Amended semantic patch produces two changes when applied tree-wide: drivers/hid/hid-sensor-custom.c:690:8-24: WARNING: hid_sensor_custom_fops: .read() has stream semantic; safe to change nonseekable_open -> stream_open. drivers/input/mousedev.c:564:1-17: ERROR: mousedev_fops: .read() can deadlock .write(); change nonseekable_open -> stream_open to fix.
