Oh. You said that for kernfs_path_from_node_locked(), and those were
changed. kernfs_path_form_node() is a different fn, but

we can rename kn_root to from here if you think that's clearer (and
change the order here as well).

Yes, I had replied saying:

I can still make that change if you like.

I did go through every email twice, once while making changes (one
branch per response) and once while making changelog for each patch,
sorry about whatever I missed. I'll go through each again.

I'm going to be out for awhile after today, so next version will
unfortunately take awhile.
