    Subjectfs inode lookup

    For consistency checks in RSBAC I am looking for a way to lookup (or at
    least check existence of) fs inodes on devices.

    Currently only kdev number and inode number are available. kdev leads
    easily to superblock and fs root dentry, inode number leads me nowhere.

    So my questions are:

    1. Is there any generic way using vfs? I didn't find any...
    2. If not, is there an official way for ext2 (and hopefully others)?
    3. If not, is there an unofficial way, although it might break from
    version to version?

    Any help appreciated! :)
