proc: Supply an accessor for getting the data from a PDE's parent
Supply an accessor function for getting the private data from the parent proc_dir_entry struct of the proc_dir_entry struct associated with an inode. ReiserFS, for instance, stores the super_block pointer in the proc directory it makes for that super_block, and a pointer to the respective seq_file show function in each of the proc files in that directory. This allows a reduction in the number of file_operations structs, open functions and seq_operations structs required. The problem otherwise is that each show function requires two pieces of data but only has storage for one per PDE (and this has no release function).
