This is great, and I suspect we'll want it for things like SGX, too.
But the current design seems like it will make it essentially
impossible for SELinux to reference an anon_inode class whose
file_operations are in a module, and moving file_operations out of a
module would be nasty.
Could this instead be keyed off a new struct anon_inode_class, an
enum, or even just a string?
