[PATCH v2 04/10] android/sync: use get_unused_fd_flags(O_CLOEXEC) instead of get_unused_fd()

From: Yann Droneaud
Date: Thu Aug 15 2013 - 09:12:43 EST

Macro get_unused_fd() is used to allocate a file descriptor with
default flags. Those default flags (0) can be "unsafe":
O_CLOEXEC must be used by default to not leak file descriptor
across exec().

Instead of macro get_unused_fd(), functions anon_inode_getfd()
or get_unused_fd_flags() should be used with flags given by userspace.
If not possible, flags should be set to O_CLOEXEC to provide userspace
with a default safe behavor.

In a further patch, get_unused_fd() will be removed so that
new code start using anon_inode_getfd() or get_unused_fd_flags()
with correct flags.

This patch replaces calls to get_unused_fd() with call to
get_unused_fd_flags(O_CLOEXEC) following advice from Erik Gilling.
