The patch introducing CONFIG_SYSCALL_SPLICE (PATCH 3) only compiles out the
syscalls. PATCH 6 on the other hand, compiles out fs/splice.c. This patch
allows fs/fuse to be compiled when fs/splice.c is compiled out. If I am to
squash it, it would be logical to include it in PATCH 6, not 3.

Is this agreeable?

PATCH 5 does the same as this one for net/core. Should I still keep PATCH 5
separate from a maintainership perspective?
