    This change will also help 9P patch series i am doing

    Currently ACL values are fetched from the server as a part of inode
    initialization. We can't do it in inode operations->permission because
    we need dentry to do 9P operations. Having inode operations->permission
    take a dentry instead of an inode help there.
