I've pulled this, but I just have to note how much I hate the function
names. "secure inode"? There's nothing particularly secure about the
resulting inode.

It's gone through the security layer init, that doesn't make it
"secure". ALL normal inodes go through it, are all those inodes thus
"secure"? No.

Naming matters, and I think these things are actively mis-named
implying things that they aren't.
