Subject: kernel: btrfs: check for read permission on src file in the clone
 ioctl

The existing [btrfs] code would have allowed you to clone a file that 
was only open for writing. Not an expected behaviour.

Upstream commit:
http://git.kernel.org/linus/5dc6416414fb3ec6e2825fd4d20c8bf1d7fe0395

Reference:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=593226

I'm not requesting a CVE name for this as it did not affect any of Red 
Hats' supported Linux kernels.

Thanks, Eugene
