Subject: linux-next: build failure after merge of the block tree

Hi all,

After merging the block tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

fs/io_uring.c: In function 'io_shutdown':
fs/io_uring.c:3782:9: error: too many arguments to function 'sock_from_file'
 3782 |  sock = sock_from_file(req->file, &ret);
      |         ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In file included from fs/io_uring.c:63:
include/linux/net.h:243:16: note: declared here
  243 | struct socket *sock_from_file(struct file *file);
      |                ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Caused by commit

  36f4fa6886a8 ("io_uring: add support for shutdown(2)")

interacting with commit

  dba4a9256bb4 ("net: Remove the err argument from sock_from_file")

from the bpf-next tree.

I have applied the following merge fix patch.
