fs: use seq_open_private() for proc_mounts
A patchset to remove support for passing pre-allocated struct seq_file to seq_open(). Such feature is undocumented and prone to error. In particular, if seq_release() is used in release handler, it will kfree() a pointer which was not allocated by seq_open(). So this patchset drops support for pre-allocated struct seq_file: it's only of use in proc_namespace.c and can be easily replaced by using seq_open_private()/seq_release_private(). Additionally, it documents the use of file->private_data to hold pointer to struct seq_file by seq_open(). This patch (of 3): Since patch described below, from v2.6.15-rc1, seq_open() could use a struct seq_file already allocated by the caller if the pointer to the structure is stored in file->private_data before calling the function. Commit 1abe77b0fc4b485927f1f798ae81a752677e1d05 Author: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Date: Mon Nov 7 17:15:34 2005 -0500 [PATCH] allow callers of seq_open do allocation themselves Allow caller of seq_open() to kmalloc() seq_file + whatever else they want and set ->private_data to it. seq_open() will then abstain from doing allocation itself. Such behavior is only used by mounts_open_common(). In order to drop support for such uncommon feature, proc_mounts is converted to use seq_open_private(), which take care of allocating the proc_mounts structure, making it available through ->private in struct seq_file. Conversely, proc_mounts is converted to use seq_release_private(), in order to release the private structure allocated by seq_open_private(). Then, ->private is used directly instead of proc_mounts() macro to access to the proc_mounts structure.
