An obvious leak here, BTW.

Anyway, what could that be used for?  I mean, if you want to check
something about syscall arguments, that's an unfixably racy way to go.
Descriptor table can be a shared data structure, and two consequent
fdget() on the same number can bloody well yield completely unrelated
struct file references.

IOW, anything that does descriptor -> struct file * translation more than
once is an instant TOCTOU suspect.  In this particular case, the function
will produce a pathname of something that was once reachable via descriptor
with this number; quite possibly never before that function had been called
_and_ not once after it has returned.
