Subject[patch 04/13] vfs: add path_create() and path_mknod()
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

R/O bind mounts require operations which modify the filesystem to be
wrapped in mnt_want_write()/mnt_drop_write(). Create helpers which do
this, so callers won't need to bother, and more importantly, cannot
forget! Call these path_*, analogous to vfs_*. Where there are no
callers of vfs_* left, make them static.

Overall this patchset is just 15 lines in the red, but at the same
time it fixes several places in nfsd and the whole of ecryptfs, where
the mnt_want_write/drop_write() calls were mssing. So it's definitely
a cleanup.

It will also help with merging certain security modules, which need to
know the path within the namespace, and not just within the
filesystem. These helpers will allow the security hooks to be in a
common place, and need not be repeated in all callers.

As I understood Al Viro's main objection is that this is not a good
interface, because callers should not be forced to have a vfsmount
available. This is bogus for two reasons:

1) The dentry_open() interface already requires a vfsmount, so any
callers operating on the filesystem and wanting to do file I/O would
necessarily have the vfsmount available. Theoretically it would be
possible that the caller doesn't want to do file I/O only
create/remove/*attr, but this is unlikely.
2) Many benefits of the R/O bind mounts would disappear if we'd allow
callers to bypass the per-mount R/O checks. Which means, that
callers do have to have the vfsmount available to do these checks
anyway.

Note, that callers might want to do mnt_want_write/drop_write() around
multiple operation to make them atomic wrt. remounting read-only. In
that case checking within the VFS is superfluous, but it should not
have any noticable performance impact.


This patch:

Introduce path_create() and path_mknod(). Make vfs_create() and
vfs_mknod() static.
