I don't understand what's going on with ->r_seq in there - your
call of path_is_under() is after having (re-)sampled rename_lock,
but if that was the only .. in there, who's going to recheck
the value? For that matter, what's to guarantee that the thing
won't get moved just as you are returning from handle_dots()?

IOW, what does LOOKUP_IN_ROOT guarantee for caller (openat2())?
