So on the whole it looked pretty small and simple. And most of the VFS
level changes looked fine and I just reacted to the odd calling
convention for open (I really think you should aim for ->open to have
the basically same arguments as you made __dentry_open have: 'struct
path', 'struct filp' and 'struct cred').

But I'd want Al's ack on the series. And also hear who uses it and how
it's been tested?
