Subject[PATCH 06/30] merge open_namei() and do_filp_open()
From
Date

open_namei() will, in the future, need to take mount write counts
over its creation and truncation (via may_open()) operations. It
needs to keep these write counts until any potential filp that is
created gets __fput()'d.

This gets complicated in the error handling and becomes very murky
as to how far open_namei() actually got, and whether or not that
mount write count was taken. That makes it a bad interface.

All that the current do_filp_open() really does is allocate the
nameidata on the stack, then call open_namei().

So, this merges those two functions and moves filp_open() over
to namei.c so it can be close to its buddy: do_filp_open(). It
also gets a kerneldoc comment in the process.
