Aye. Applied, with enum, but an anonymous one; no point breeding
tags without a reason.

Another note: chroot_fs_refs() shouldn't bump refcount at all; it should
do replacements, count them and then do path_release(old_root) that many
times - after having gone through all tasks.

I'm taking fs_struct handling into a new file (fs/fs_struct.c, unless
somebody has a better name), will do that in the same patch.
