Subject[PATCH 23/24] new ->follow_link() and ->put_link() calling conventions
Date
From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

a) instead of storing the symlink body (via nd_set_link()) and returning
an opaque pointer later passed to ->put_link(), ->follow_link() _stores_
that opaque pointer (via nd_pin_link()) and returns the symlink body.
Returning ERR_PTR() on error, NULL on jump (procfs magic symlinks) and
pointer to symlink body for normal symlinks.

Storing NULL for opaque pointer (or not storing it at all) means no call
of ->put_link().

b) the body isn't passed to ->put_link() anymore, only the opaque pointer
is. In the cases when we used the symlink body to free stuff, ->follow_link()
now stores it as opaque pointer as well as returning it.
