No they aren't. You think they are, and then you find one case, and
ignore all the others.

Look around for AIO. Look around for the loop driver. Look around for
a number of things that do "fget()" and that you completely ignored.

So no, your patch doesn't change the fundamental issue in any way,
shape, or form.

I asked you to stop emailing me with these broken "let's fix one
special case, because I can't be bothered to understand the big
picture" patches. This was another one of those hacky sh*t patches
that doesn't actually change the deeper issue. Stop it. Seriously.
This idiotic thread has been going on for too long.
