Subject[patch 01/33] fs: no games with DCACHE_UNHASHED
(this is in -mm)

Filesystems outside the regular namespace do not have to clear DCACHE_UNHASHED
in order to have a working /proc/$pid/fd/XXX. Nothing in proc prevents the
fd link from being used if its dentry is not in the hash.

Also, it does not get put into the dcache hash if DCACHE_UNHASHED is clear;
that depends on the filesystem calling d_add or d_rehash.

So delete the misleading comments and needless code.
