SubjectReg:dentry->d_mounts value

Sorry to disturb you all.

In the d_alloc() function in the vfs layer of the filesystem(2.2.14
kernel) we can see the following:

dentry->d_mounts = dentry;
dentry->d_covers = dentry;

Why should both the above be assigned the values of dentry. Wher elase is
this used. Please help me with this information.

Thanks in advance,
