Subject: [PATCH] Abort file_remove_privs() for non-reg. files
Date: Fri, 14 Dec 2018 11:55:52 +0100

file_remove_privs() might be called for non-regular files, e.g.
blkdev inode. There is no reason to do its job on things
like blkdev inodes, pipes, or cdevs. Hence, abort if
file does not refer to a regular inode.
The following stacktrace shows how to get there:

11: _static_cpu_has:146
10: do_syscall_32_irqs_on:322
