Caused by commit 95506588d2c1d72ca29adef8ae9bf771bcfb4ced

socket: do a generic_file_splice_read when proto_ops has no splice_read

exposing all ->recvmsg() instances to pipe-backed iov_iter as possible destination.
It's not all that hard to fix (I'll probably have a candidate patch by tonight,
it's just a matter of adding the only missing primitive), but... shouldn't that
patch have sat in -next for at least some testing first? Because it's very
easy to reproduce - splice from e.g. UDP socket will step into it. Sure, the
sky is not falling (unless you set panic-on-WARN, that is); the damn thing
would've failed anyway, but...
