It is path->dentry, all right, but the question is how'd it get that way.
Look: we got that nd.path.dentry out of path_lookup() with LOOKUP_FOLLOW
as flags. Then we'd passed it through do_new_mount() to do_add_mount()
without changes. And went through
/* Something was mounted here while we slept */
while (d_mountpoint(nd->path.dentry) &&
follow_down(&nd->path.mnt, &nd->path.dentry))
;
