"Have we got the root" checks are inevitable evil; here you are making the
control flow in a single function hard to follow.

I *think* what you are doing is
absolute pathname, no LOOKUP_BENEATH:
set_root
error = nd_jump_root(nd)
else
error = dirfd_path_init(nd)
return unlikely(error) ? ERR_PTR(error) : s;
which should be a lot easier to follow (not to mention shorter), but I might
be missing something in all of that.
