"dirent" events are referring to events that modify directory entries,
such as create,delete,rename. Those events are always be reported
on a watched directory, regardless if FS_EVENT_ON_CHILD is set
on the watch mask.

ALL_FSNOTIFY_DIRENT_EVENTS defines all the dirent event types and
those event types are removed from FS_EVENTS_POSS_ON_CHILD.

That means for a directory with an inotify watch and only dirent
events in the mask (i.e. create,delete,move), all children dentries
will no longer have the DCACHE_FSNOTIFY_PARENT_WATCHED flag set.
This will allow all events that happen on children to be optimized
away in __fsnotify_parent() without the need to dereference
child->d_parent->d_inode->i_fsnotify_mask.

Since the dirent events are never repoted via __fsnotify_parent(),
this results in no change of logic, but only an optimization.
