[PATCH 1/1] fs/splice.c: Fix old documentation about moving pages
From: Leonardo Bras
Date: Thu Aug 01 2019 - 18:39:08 EST
Since commit 485ddb4b9741 ("1/2 splice: dont steal")' (2007),
the SPLICE_F_MOVE support was removed (became a no-op according
to man pages), and thus disabling steal operation that would make
moving pages possible.
This fixes the comment, making clear pages are not moved.
