    vfs: Generalize filesystem nodev handling. · a2982cc9
    Eric W. Biederman authored
    Introduce a function may_open_dev that tests MNT_NODEV and a new
    superblock flab SB_I_NODEV.  Use this new function in all of the
    places where MNT_NODEV was previously tested.
    Add the new SB_I_NODEV s_iflag to proc, sysfs, and mqueuefs as those
    filesystems should never support device nodes, and a simple superblock
    flags makes that very hard to get wrong.  With SB_I_NODEV set if any
    device nodes somehow manage to show up on on a filesystem those
    device nodes will be unopenable.
