vfs: move dentry_cmp from <linux/dcache.h> to fs/dcache.c
It's only used inside fs/dcache.c, and we're going to play games with it for the word-at-a-time patches. This time we really don't even want to export it, because it really is an internal function to fs/dcache.c, and has been since it was introduced. Having it in that extremely hot header file (it's included in pretty much everything, thanks to <linux/fs.h>) is a disaster for testing different versions, and is utterly pointless. We really should have some kind of header file diet thing, where we figure out which parts of header files are really better off private and only result in more expensive compiles.
