Subject(struct dentry *)->vfsmnt;
Could someone enlighten me as to the purpose of this field in the
dentry struct? There is no elucidating comment in the header for this
particular field and the name/type only indicate it is pointing to
a list of vfsmounts. Can a dentry belong to more than one vfsmount?

If I have a 'dentry' and simply want to determine what the absolute
path from root is, in the 'd_path' macro, would I use 'rootmnt' of my
current->fs as the 'vfsmount' as well?

Thanks, in advance...
