fs: add do_mkdirat() helper and ksys_mkdir() wrapper; remove in-kernel calls to syscall
Using the fs-internal do_mkdirat() helper allows us to get rid of fs-internal calls to the sys_mkdirat() syscall. Introducing the ksys_mkdir() wrapper allows us to avoid the in-kernel calls to the sys_mkdir() syscall. The ksys_ prefix denotes that this function is meant as a drop-in replacement for the syscall. In particular, it uses the same calling convention as sys_mkdir(). This patch is part of a series which removes in-kernel calls to syscalls. On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined.
