On second thought this is not exactly right, get_file_rcu() can fail if
get_task_file() races with dup2(), in this case we need to do fcheck_files()
again. And this is what __fget() already does, so may be the patch below
makes more sense?

I will leave this to other reviewers, but suddenly I recall that I have
already sent the patch which adds a similar helper a while ago.

See https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20180915160423.GA31461@redhat.com/

In short, get_files_struct() should be avoided because it can race with
exec() and break POSIX locks which use ->fl_owner = files_struct.

Oleg.
