nilfs2: deny write access to inodes in snapshots
Snapshots of nilfs are read-only. After super block instances (sb) will be unified, nilfs will need to check write access by a way other than implicit test with IS_RDONLY(inode). This is because IS_RDONLY() refers to MS_RDONLY bit of inode->i_sb->s_flags and it will become inaccurate after the unification of sb. To prepare for the issue, this uses i_op->permission to deny write access to inodes in snapshots. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
