Subject: [PATCH 0/6] kernel tinification: optionally compile out splice family of syscalls (splice, vmsplice, tee and sendfile)

REPO: https://github.com/smipi1/linux-tinification.git

BRANCH: tiny/config-syscall-splice

BACKGROUND: This patch-set forms part of the Linux Kernel Tinification effort (
  https://tiny.wiki.kernel.org/).

GOAL: Support compiling out the splice family of syscalls (splice, vmsplice,
  tee and sendfile) along with all supporting infrastructure if not needed.
  Many embedded systems will not need the splice-family syscalls. Omitting them
  saves space.

STRATEGY:
a. With the goal of eventually compiling out fs/splice.c, several functions
   that are only used in support of the the splice family of syscalls are moved
   into fs/splice.c from fs/read_write.c. The kernel_write function that is not
   used to support the splice syscalls is moved to fs/read_write.c:
     0001-fs-move-sendfile-syscall-into-fs-splice.patch
     0002-fs-moved-kernel_write-to-fs-read_write.patch

b. Introduce an EXPERT kernel configuration option; CONFIG_SYSCALL_SPLICE; to
   compile out the splice family of syscalls. This removes all userspace uses
   of the splice infrastructure.
     0003-fs-splice-support-compiling-out-splice-family-syscal.patch

c. Splice exports an operations struct, nosteal_pipe_buf_ops. Eliminate the 
   use of this struct when CONFIG_SYSCALL_SPLICE is undefined, so that splice
   can later be compiled out:
     0004-fs-fuse-support-compiling-out-splice.patch
     0005-net-core-support-compiling-out-splice.patch

e. Compile out fs/splice.c. Functions exported by fs/splice are mocked out with
   failing static inlines. This is done so as to all but eliminate the
   maintenance burden on file-system drivers.
     0006-fs-splice-full-support-for-compiling-out-splice.patch

RESULTS: A tinyconfig bloat-o-meter score for the entire patch-set:
