Don't bother with redoing rw_verify_area() from default_file_splice_from()
default_file_splice_from() ends up calling vfs_write() (via very convoluted callchain). It's an overkill, since we already have done rw_verify_area() in the caller by the time we call vfs_write() we are under set_fs(KERNEL_DS), so access_ok() is also pointless. Add a new helper (__kernel_write()), use it instead of kernel_write() in there. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
