Subject[PATCH 05/39] vfs: optionally don't account file in nr_files
Date
Stacking file operations in overlay will store an extra open file for each
overlay file opened.

The overhead is just that of "struct file" which is about 256bytes, because
overlay already pins an extra dentry and inode when the file is open, which
add up to a much larger overhead.

For fear of breaking working setups, don't start accounting the extra file.

The implementation adds a bool argument to path_open() to control whether
the returned file is to be accounted or not. If the file is not accounted,
f_mode will contain FMODE_NOACCOUNT, so that when freeing the file the
count is not decremented.
