FWIW, there's a bit of abuse of struct kstat in overlayfs object
creation paths - for one thing, it ends up with a very small subset
of struct kstat (mode + rdev), for another it also needs link in
case of symlinks and ends up passing it separately.

IMO it would be better to introduce a separate object for that; does anybody
have objections to something like the patch below?  In principle, we might
even lift that thing into general API and switch ->mkdir()/->mknod()/->symlink()
to identical calling conventions.  Hell knows, perhaps ->create() as well...
Comments?

Good cleanup.  Applied, thanks.
