If it worked, and I'm not sure the timing would be reliable enough, the
daemon would only have to have open every directory being accessed by
every program in the system. Hmm. Seems like overkill when you're only
interested in files that are being modified.

It would be much, much more reliable to do a walk over d_parent in
dnotify.c. Your idea is a nice way to flag kernel dentries such that
you don't do d_parent walks unnecessarily.
