got it. I missed -> part. Now it makes sense.

I see. So all FS events will have dentry as first argument
regardless of how it is in LSM hook ?
I guess that will simplify the rules indeed.
I suspect you're doing it to simplify the LSM->landlock shim layer as well, right?

The reason I'm asking, because I'm not completely convinced that
adding another argument to existing event will be backwards compatible.
It looks like you're expecting only two args for all FS events, right?
How can you add 3rd argument? All FS events would have to get it,
but in some LSM hooks such argument will be meaningless, whereas
in other places it will carry useful info that rule can operate on.
Would that mean that we'll have FS_3 event type and only few LSM
hooks will be converted to it. That works, but then we'll lose
compatiblity with old rules written for FS event and that given hook.
Otherwise we'd need to have fancy logic to accept old FS event
into FS_3 LSM hook.
