Do you mean "change instance_delete() path to nullify ->i_private" ?

Yes. Well yes and no, afaics, but please ignore. Of course, I won't
send the patches with the holes which I knew about.

Once again, this is just RFC to know your and Masami's opinion. If
you think this can work, I'll try to resend this series with the
additional bits to cover instance_delete() too. _Afaics_ this needs
some temporary uglifications "in between".

So far I am sending 5/4 and 6/4 which changes ftrace_event_format_fops,
in reply to 0/4. The only problem with this file is that f_start/next
imho asks for cleanup which comes as 5/4.

Ignoring instance_delete(), I think this is all we need to make
event/* safe.

So please tell me what do you think.

Oleg.
