Subject[PATCH 6/7] vfs: only add " (deleted)" where necessary
__d_path() has 4 callers:

d_path()
sys_getcwd()
seq_path_root()
tomoyo_realpath_from_path2()

Of these the only one which needs the " (deleted)" ending is d_path().

sys_getcwd() checks for existence before calling __d_path().

seq_path_root() is used to show the mountpoint path in
/proc/PID/mountinfo, which is always a positive.

And tomoyo doesn't want the deleted ending.

Create a helper "path_with_deleted()" as subsequent patches will need
this in multiple places.
