splice: reinstate SIGPIPE/EPIPE handling
Commit 8924feff66f3 ("splice: lift pipe_lock out of splice_to_pipe()") caused a regression when there were no more readers left on a pipe that was being spliced into: rather than the expected SIGPIPE and -EPIPE return value, the writer would end up waiting forever for space to free up (which obviously was not going to happen with no readers around). Fixes: 8924feff66f3 ("splice: lift pipe_lock out of splice_to_pipe()") Reported-and-tested-by: Andreas Schwab <> Debugged-by: Al Viro <> Cc: # v4.9 Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
