Subject[PATCH 03/17] VFS: Implement handling for pathless pioctls
Date
From: Wang Lei <wang840925@gmail.com>

Implement handling for pathless pioctls. Because these take no path argument,
there's no way to know for certain which filesystem they're aimed at, so we
have to switch on command number instead. This patch allows interested parties
to register handlers. Each registered handler function is tried in turn until
one doesn't return -EOPNOTSUPP.

This is required because OpenAFS implemented a number of AFS calls that don't
get given a path as they're aimed at AFS in general, and not at a particular
file, volume or cell in the AFS world.
