Subject[PATCH 08/24] namei.c: separate the parts of follow_link() that find the link body
Date
From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

Calling conventions for ->follow_link() are rather unfortunate. It
would be better to have it return ERR_PTR(error) on error, NULL on
jumps and link body for normal symlinks. What we currently return
(opaque pointer used by ->put_link() once we are done) should've
been given to analogue (and replacement) of nd_set_link().

For now let's just split a piece of fs/namei.c:follow_link() that
does obtaining the link body into a separate function. When we
get around to changing ->follow_link() API, the changes will be
contained in that sucker. follow_link() itself converted to
calling get_link() and then doing the body traversal (if any).

The next step will expand follow_link() call in link_path_walk()
and this helps to keep the size down...
