This is called when remounting a block device. The WRAP_ARG_SB take the
sb->s_root as a dentry, it is not a cast. What do you expect from this hook?

The context used for the FS event must have the exact same types for all
calls. This event is meant to be generic but we can add more specific
ones if needed, like I do with FS_IOCTL.

The idea is to enable people to write simple rules, while being able to
write fine grain rules for special cases (e.g. IOCTL) if needed.

It's not a hard limit at all. Actually, the FS_FNCTL event should have
three arguments (I'll add them in the next series): FS handle, FCNTL
command and FCNTL argument. I made sure that it's really easy to add
more arguments to the context of an event.
