This series of patches introduce wrappers for functions,
arguments simplification in functions calls and most importantly
groups duplicated code in a single header, simplefs, to avoid redundancy
in the linux fs, especially debugfs and tracefs.

Signed-off-by: Emanuele Giuseppe Esposito <eesposit@redhat.com>

Emanuele Giuseppe Esposito (8):
  apparmor: just use vfs_kern_mount to make .null
  fs: extract simple_pin/release_fs to separate files
  fs: wrap simple_pin_fs/simple_release_fs arguments in a struct
  fs: introduce simple_new_inode
  simplefs: add alloc_anon_inode wrapper
  simplefs: add file creation functions
  debugfs: switch to simplefs inode creation API
  tracefs: switch to simplefs inode creation API

The general goal seems worthy, but here I don't see explained why hasn't
this gone through libfs, and what the intention was long term. For
instance, you added some other generalizations which you have found. It
was not clear that this was the goal here, to expand on these paths.

What if common code on fs is found which are not part of debugfs and
tracefs, how does one decide if to move to libfs or simplefs?
