Subject[PATCH 22/39] union-mount: Add generic_readdir_fallthru() helper
Date
In readdir(), client file systems need to lookup the target of a
fallthru in a lower layer for three reasons: (1) fill in d_ino, (2)
fill in d_type, (2) make sure there is something to fall through to
(and if not, don't return this dentry). Create a generic helper
function.
