Hmm, that wasn't on purpose. But for this specific case, I think we can
just pretend that never happened.

That seems like a bug, I'd happily take a patch for that...

Just to make sure I'm undestanding your proposal, you want the result
from those fd instantiating calls to be added to the array of registered
files, instead of having the application do that? If so, I think this is
another case where the BPF driven links would be useful, as we could
easily do it through that with an IORING_OP_FILES_UPDATE linked to
either one of those commands.

index 0 is valid, so we can't use that trick.

Do you have specifics? Generally the file grabbing happens as part of
request prep, and the individual opcodes should not need to bother with
