[PATCH] fdtable: Provide free_fdtable() wrapper
Christoph Hellwig has expressed concerns that the recent fdtable changes expose the details of the RCU methodology used to release no-longer-used fdtable structures to the rest of the kernel. The trivial patch below addresses these concerns by introducing the appropriate free_fdtable() calls, which simply wrap the release RCU usage. Since free_fdtable() is a one-liner, it makes sense to promote it to an inline helper.
