scsi: sg: mitigate read/write abuse
As Al Viro noted in commit 128394eff343 ("sg_write()/bsg_write() is not fit to be called under KERNEL_DS"), sg improperly accesses userspace memory outside the provided buffer, permitting kernel memory corruption via splice(). But it doesn't just do it on ->write(), also on ->read(). As a band-aid, make sure that the ->read() and ->write() handlers can not be called in weird contexts (kernel context or credentials different from file opener), like for ib_safe_file_access(). If someone needs to use these interfaces from different security contexts, a new interface should be written that goes through the ->ioctl() handler. I've mostly copypasted ib_safe_file_access() over as sg_safe_file_access() because I couldn't find a good common header - please tell me if you know a better way.
