[PATCH] fsnotify.h: Dropped redundant code.

From: Radu Voicilas
Date: Mon Jan 24 2011 - 12:45:54 EST

The code that checks to see whether the provided dentry object is valid
or not is redundant with the one that's in fs/notify/fsnotify.c in
the __fsnotify_parent function:

if (!dentry)
dentry = path->dentry;
