    Pull vfs pile #2 from Al Viro:
     "Next pile (and there'll be one or two more).
      The large piece in this one is getting rid of /proc/*/ns/* weirdness;
      among other things, it allows to (finally) make nameidata completely
      opaque outside of fs/namei.c, making for easier further cleanups in
    * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs:
      coda_venus_readdir(): use file_inode()
      fs/namei.c: fold link_path_walk() call into path_init()
      path_init(): don't bother with LOOKUP_PARENT in argument
      fs/namei.c: new helper (path_cleanup())
      path_init(): store the "base" pointer to file in nameidata itself
      make default ->i_fop have ->open() fail with ENXIO
      make nameidata completely opaque outside of fs/namei.c
      kill proc_ns completely
      take the targets of /proc/*/ns/* symlinks to separate fs
      bury struct proc_ns in fs/proc
      copy address of proc_ns_ops into ns_common
      new helpers: ns_alloc_inum/ns_free_inum
      make proc_ns_operations work with struct ns_common * instead of void *
      switch the rest of proc_ns_operations to working with &...->ns
      netns: switch ->get()/->put()/->install()/->inum() to working with &net->ns
      make mntns ->get()/->put()/->install()/->inum() work with &mnt_ns->ns
      common object embedded into various struct ....ns
