[patch 1/4] vfs: utimes: move owner check into inode_change_ok()
Add a new ia_valid flag: ATTR_TIMES_SET, to handle the UTIMES_OMIT/UTIMES_NOW and UTIMES_NOW/UTIMES_OMIT cases. In these cases neither ATTR_MTIME_SET nor ATTR_ATIME_SET is in the flags, yet the POSIX draft specifies that permission checking is performed the same way as if one or both of the times was explicitly set to a timestamp. See the path "vfs: utimensat(): fix error checking for {UTIME_NOW,UTIME_OMIT} case" by Michael Kerrisk for the patch introducing this behavior. This is a cleanup, as well as allowing filesystems (NFS/fuse/...) to perform their own permission checking instead of the default.
