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

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

Upstream commit:


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

Thanks, Eugene
