On checking fat_search_long() logic, it is observed that it performs
name based lookup of the entries in a given directory.
In fat_get_parent(), we do not have such information to use the
existing API to reconstruct the parent inode.
Could you give me some hint or guide to consolidate smoothly
fat_search_long and current traverse_logic ?
