This seems broken.

Why don't you just pass in the filp to the ->open routine, and drop
that "flags" argument. Maybe other filesystems want to use ->open, but
don't want to put_filp() on the filp we already allocated, only to
allocate a new one?

It seems like you made that unnecessarily hard on purpose, with no
advantage to the interface.
