Umm...  Not sure - I'm not too fond of fs_lookup_param(), but AFAIK there are
efforts to convert more filesystems to new mount API and I don't know if any
of those are currently using it - this work has moved to individual fs trees
now, so it's hard to keep track of.

Generally I would say "if it's out of tree, it's not our problem", but the new
API is fairly recent and conversions of in-tree filesystems aree still in
progress.  And they are likely to stay in topical branches in the regular
git trees of those in-tree filesystems while they are being developed, so
right now I would rather be careful with removals in that area, short of
serious problem with the primitive itself.  Being able to make lookup_filename()
static is obviously nice, but considering the changes done later in the series...
Let's hold it back for now.
