umh: Stop calling do_execve_file
With the user mode driver code changed to not set subprocess_info.file there are no more users of subproces_info.file. Remove this field from struct subprocess_info and remove the only user in call_usermodehelper_exec_async that would call do_execve_file instead of do_execve if file was set. v1: https://lkml.kernel.org/r/877dvuf0i7.fsf_-_@x220.int.ebiederm.org v2: https://lkml.kernel.org/r/87r1tx4p2a.fsf_-_@x220.int.ebiederm.org Link: https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200702164140.4468-9-ebiederm@xmission.com Reviewed-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Acked-by: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@kernel.org> Tested-by: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: "Eric W.
