fsnotify: pass a file instead of an inode to open, read, and write
fanotify, the upcoming notification system actually needs a struct path so it can do opens in the context of listeners, and it needs a file so it can get f_flags from the original process. Close was the only operation that already was passing a struct file to the notification hook. This patch passes a file for access, modify, and open as well as they are easily available to these hooks. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
