Massive pathwalk rewrite and cleanups.  Several iterations had
been posted; hopefully the damn thing is getting readable and understandable
now.  Pretty much all parts of pathname resolutions are affected...

The branch is identical to what has sat in -next, except for commit message in
"lift all calls of step_into() out of follow_dotdot/follow_dotdot_rcu",
crediting Qian Cai for reporting the bug; only commit message changed there.
 I'd folded the fix back in Mar 25, and it had been present in -next since then
(see #work.dotdot).  I asked Qian Cai whether he wanted his tested-by on that
thing, got no reply...
	Anyway, all diffs in that branch are identical to the ones in
#work.dotdot, which is what has sat in linux-next for the last week.

      fix automount/automount race properly
      follow_automount(): get rid of dead^Wstillborn code
      follow_automount() doesn't need the entire nameidata
      make build_open_flags() treat O_CREAT | O_EXCL as implying O_NOFOLLOW
      handle_mounts(): start building a sane wrapper for follow_managed()
      atomic_open(): saner calling conventions (return dentry on success)
      lookup_open(): saner calling conventions (return dentry on success)
      do_last(): collapse the call of path_to_nameidata()
      handle_mounts(): pass dentry in, turn path into a pure out argument
      lookup_fast(): consolidate the RCU success case
      teach handle_mounts() to handle RCU mode
      lookup_fast(): take mount traversal into callers
      step_into() callers: dismiss the symlink earlier
      new step_into() flag: WALK_NOFOLLOW
      fold handle_mounts() into step_into()
      LOOKUP_MOUNTPOINT: fold path_mountpointat() into path_lookupat()

      merging pick_link() with get_link(), part 5
      merging pick_link() with get_link(), part 6
      finally fold get_link() into pick_link()
      sanitize handling of nd->last_type, kill LAST_BIND
      namei: invert the meaning of WALK_FOLLOW
      pick_link(): check for WALK_TRAILING, not LOOKUP_PARENT
      link_path_walk(): simplify stack handling
      namei: have link_path_walk() maintain LOOKUP_PARENT
      massage __follow_mount_rcu() a bit
      new helper: traverse_mounts()
      atomic_open(): return the right dentry in FMODE_OPENED case
      atomic_open(): lift the call of may_open() into do_last()
      do_last(): merge the may_open() calls
      do_last(): don't bother with keeping got_write in FMODE_OPENED case
      do_last(): rejoing the common path earlier in FMODE_{OPENED,CREATED} case
      do_last(): simplify the liveness analysis past finish_open_created
      do_last(): rejoin the common path even earlier in FMODE_{OPENED,CREATED} case
      split the lookup-related parts of do_last() into a separate helper
      path_connected(): pass mount and dentry separately

      lift all calls of step_into() out of follow_dotdot/follow_dotdot_rcu
      follow_dotdot{,_rcu}(): massage loops
      follow_dotdot_rcu(): be lazy about changing nd->path
      follow_dotdot(): be lazy about changing nd->path
