Function lookup_cdev works similar with lookup_bdev, we can get
a cdev instance by lookup_cdev with a parameter of dev name.

This function will be used in quotactl to get a cdev by a dev name.

Thanks for the patch.

Again I don't like the code duplication here. Can we have a common
function lookup_dev() like:

int lookup_dev(const char *pathname, struct cdev **cdevp,
	       struct block_device **bdevp)
{
	struct inode *inode;
	struct path path;
	int error;

	if (!pathname || !*pathname)
		return -EINVAL;

	error = kern_path(pathname, LOOKUP_FOLLOW, &path);
	if (error)
		return error;

	inode = d_backing_inode(path.dentry);
	error = -ENODEV;

	if (!((S_ISCHR(inode->i_mode) && cdevp) ||
	      (S_ISBLK(inode->i_mode) && bdevp)))
		goto out;
	error = -EACCES;
	if (path.mnt->mnt_flags & MNT_NODEV)
		goto out;
	error = -ENXIO;
	if (S_ISCHR(inode->i_mode)) {
		struct cdev *cdev;

		cdev = cd_acquire(inode);
		if (!cdev)
			goto out;
		*cdevp = cdev;
	} else {
		struct block_device *bdev;

		bdev = bd_acquire(inode);
		if (!bdev)
			goto out;
		*bdevp = bdev;
	}
	error = 0;
out:
	path_put(&path);
	return error;
}

It is then easy to wrap lookup_bdev() around it. I'm not too happy about
the function prototype but I still think it's better than the duplication.
Al? Also quota code can then easily use this lookup_dev() function instead
of trying one device type and then another one...
