Subject: [for-linus][PATCH 6/8] tracing: Make splice_read available again

From: Sung-hun Kim <>

Since the commit 36e2c7421f02 ("fs: don't allow splice read/write
without explicit ops") is applied to the kernel, splice() and
sendfile() calls on the trace file (/sys/kernel/debug/tracing
/trace) return EINVAL.

This patch restores these system calls by initializing splice_read
in file_operations of the trace file. This patch only enables such
functionalities for the read case.
